Skipton Christmas Market

Sunday 3rd and Sunday 10th of December 2017

Come to Skipton for Christmas and buy all your gifts from our famous market and range of independent and high street brand shops.

The Christmas Market runs the full length of the High Street alongside many local charity and gift stalls selling everything you could want for your friends and family.

A full range of entertainment ensuring a Christmas atmosphere will take place in the arena on the High Street and at locations around the town, making The Skipton Christmas Market an ideal opportunity to sample a great Christmas atmosphere and to find a Christmas bargain at the same time.

At 4pm the day closes with a procession up the High Street to the Holy Trinity Church grounds, where a traditional Christmas carol service takes place to round off a wonderful day.

We had one of the best holidays of our lives whilst staying at Fernside Cottage. The cottage itself was perfect, it was very clean, high quality, beautifully decorated and had all the gadgets you could need (including 3 TV’s!). We were greeted with fresh flowers, fruit and free range eggs as a little extra by the lovely owners. Pauline (the owner) was there for any problems should we need her for anything yet allowed us the peaceful holiday we desired. The parking was ample and the views were AMAZING.

Moving on to local activities. There was so much to do- we have booked in again for next year in order to finish our ‘to do’ list. We visited Skipton Castle, Malham Cove, Malham Tarn, Went on a canal trip, walked parts of the penine way, had lunch at the local pubs and so much more. All in all a great place to explore the dales from and to recharge your batteries.
