Bird Display, Skipton Market

Skipton Market: Market Day(s.)

Skipton's market is held Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday so there's every chance there'll be a market on if you are visiting!!!

Best to get in to town reasonably early to be sure of parking. Having said that, we had no problem parking in the motorhome at 10.54am, in the Town Hall carpark. I did notice the park was very full by the time we left, around 1.30pm.

Having gone to Skipton just with the intention of wandering round before a pub lunch and not being in the "buying" mood, I found the most interesting feature of the market was a bird of prey demonstration. I'm not sure how interesting the birds found the market, though!!

What to buy: The market sells a wonderful array of items, including deli. goods such as olives and dried and crystallised fruits. One thing which was very much evident was high viz. clothing!!!

What to pay: Probably no cheaper than the shops!!

Address: Skipton, North Yorkshire.

Directions: The market is set out on the High Street, along both sides.

Theme: Women's Clothes
