Skipton castle Yorkshire is a beautifully preserved castle that was built in 1090. We had a day out and saw all the attractions of the day. There was a re-enactment of medieval court cases and the castle visitors were the jurors and also dancing and archery displays.
A great day out.
Skipton Castle was originally a motte and bailey castle made of earth and wood but was rebuilt in stone. It is a very good defensive position being near cliffs and a river.
It is an important tourist attraction locally and is also a private residence.
