Limousines for Hire in Skipton
Skipton is a busy country market town at the southern base of the Yorkshire Dales. Its name means ‘sheep town’ and indeed much of its prosperity came from the sheep and wool trade. Today, the bustling market, held four days a week in the broad, tree-lined
High Street is still a focal point for many of the thousands of visitors who flock here. But, with its pretty cobbled streets, Skipton also has lots more to offer. Why not make a leisurely visit by Professionally Chauffeured Limousine discover its treasures for yourself?
The High Street is also home to numerous shops, including most of the town’s national brand stores. Skipton also has many independent specialist shops.

Or visit the attractive Victorian Craven Court shopping centre.
And if you fancy taking in some of the town’s history, then Skipton Castle is well worth a visit. It’s one of the best preserved and most complete medieval castles in England, despite enduring a three-year siege in the Civil War.
Or how about seeing the town from a different perspective? The country’s longest inland waterway, the Leeds Liverpool Canal, flows right through the middle of Skipton and pleasure barges offer the visitor a short trip along a little of its 127 miles. Around the canal basin you will also find the marina, pleasant footpaths and picnic areas.
