Dog's dales

For a unique family experience in Skipton you can download the free  Dogs’ Dales Augmented Reality app!

This mobile app trail takes you through a short treasure hunt trail around Skipton town centre where you can conjure up cute dogs to interact with.

The dogs ask you some local heritage linked fun questions and in the end reward you with a treat voucher to a local participating business.

Amazingly during the trail you can also dance with the dogs and pose for fun pictures to share!
