Skipton contains a mixture of ancient, old and modern buildings. Many of the buildings have seen different uses over the years. Visitors are recommended to look at the Skipton Civic Society website http://www.skiptoncivicsociety.org for details of walks around the centre of Skipton which take in the most interesting buildings. In addition, visit the Craven Museum, located in the Town Hall, to see displays covering all of Skipton’s history. One exhibit of which we are justly proud is a copy of a First Folio of the plays by William Shakespeare in their original form.
