castles and history

Listed here are some of our castles . . .

Skipton castle



The majestic towers at the main entrance to Skipton Castle

No 1 in our book!

Located at the top of the fine old market town of Skipton.  Skipton is a lovely old town, with some good class shops and food. Sadly, the market is going the way of most markets – being flooded with cheap imported goods. However some good traditional stalls still exist.


Sandal castle, near Wakefield



Sandal Castle ruins


Of historic interest, its worth a look if only for the pleasant easy walks nearby.




Conisborough Castle, near Doncaster



This nicely preserved castle is well worth your time.

Its easily accessible; just of the main Doncaster Rotherham road.
