    Culture and beer!

    by doofus Updated May 23, 2010

    Favorite thing: Yes, I do agree about the local museum in the Town Hall just down from the Castle. They were still doing the count for the General Election when we popped in to visit the museum!
    The Castle was absolutely great as well. In fact, it is difficult to find anything negative to say about Skipton. The markets were wonderful as well giving the High Street lots of character.
    The Pubs, well what can I say-- absolutely great with all or most serving the local brews. The Narrow Boat pub I particularly enjoyed.
    Is there a better Fish and Chip shop than Bessy's in the whole of the country? If there is-- then I haven't found it yet! Wonderful take-away(or eat in ) fish and chips.
    Lovely walks along the canal. Railway station in centre of town as well. On the famous and scenic line to Carlisle. Easy access to Leeds or Bradford. Two big supermarkets in centre of town. All in all a fantastic place.
    The highlight for us was the Canal Festival spread over three days. Lots of entertainment as well-- all for free!!
    In fact-- I could easilly live there!

    Favorite thing: Take a walk along the canal and look at the colourful and typical English canal boats moored up or just passing by.
