Skipton Things to Do: 68 reviews and 245 photos

Sheep day in Skipton is an annual event in which the town centre is taken over by everything and anything to do with Sheep.
The atmosphere is amazing with everything sheep related, [they take sheep very seriously here].
There are rare breeds, which are shown by experts who explain breeds and breeding procedures, sheep shearing exhibitions and a sheep disco. there are also childrens activities and lots of entertainment.

Directions: Sheep day is held mainly on the high street, all the locals get involved and shops on the high street and the side streets join in.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
