Where we are

We are about 12 miles from the end of the M65, which terminates in Colne. If you are coming from the Leeds direction, then you'd be better off coming through Otley on the A65 than the Keighley way, it's a nicer road, and has a lot less traffic. The main (pay) car parks in Skipton are:

There are also large free car parks for customers at Morrisons, Tesco, and Focus.

By Train

By Bus
