    Parking

    Sunday, 4pm ish.

    Skipton is an extremely busy and popular market town but it does have a fair number of carparks. Be warned, though, that if you leave it too late to get parked on a market day (Mon, Weds, Fri and Sats) you could be circling round for a long time. We were in a motorhome and had it all planned that we would be in Skipton reasonably early in the morning. However, on the Sunday, we were delayed, having to call out Green Flag to get us started after an extremely cold night. It was after 2pm by the time we got to Skipton. We were fortunate, it being Sunday, we managed to park in the park behind the Town Hall without too much difficulty. The following morning, a market day, we once again were able to park, it being only 10.20am. By the time we left, the park was full and people were waiting for spaces.

    A word of warning, Craven Council patrol these parks, make sure you have paid the correct amount. Also, if you are longer than one space, you should buy two tickets. We got away with this; quite honestly some of the carpark bay markings are very difficult to distinguish.
