Moving to Skipton
Are you thinking of moving to Skipton? The 2014 Sunday Times annual survey named the town as the best place to live. They said: “A vibrant community, excellent schools, low crime rates and an idyllic location give the 15,000 residents of Skipton-in-Craven (to give it its full name) a quality of life that puts other places in the shade.” It has good transport links and a thriving high street with plenty of independent shops.
Skipton’s Victorian railway station runs services to Leeds, Bradford, Morecambe and Carlisle. The A65 and the A629 are both conveniently close to the town. Leeds Bradford International Airport is only 15 miles by car.

There’s plenty do in the town its self. A visit to Skipton castle is a must. It’s one of the most complete, fully roofed medieval castles in England. Once you’ve explored, you can enjoy a cup of tea and some homemade cake in the Clifford Tearooms. The Craven Swimming Pool and Fitness Centre at Aireville Park has the largest pool in the area and the gym offers state of the art cardiovascular and resistance equipment, so there’s no excuse for not keeping fit!
