You will find Skipton Castle Woods a short walk from the High Street and hidden behind Skipton Castle, here you will find a rare ancient woodland habitat.

With a fascinating history that dates back a thousand years,  you will be able to see stunning seasonal displays and amazing wildlife. The best way to experience Skipton Castle Woods is to visit by walking along the spectacular tow path from Mill Bridge in the heart of Skipton. On arrival in the wood you will find a site map full of interesting features, suggested walking routes and more activities to try.  There are also two sculptures made from willow, so keep your eyes open for the Spirit of the Medieval Huntress and The Stalking Horse.
