Skipton Castle

Skipton Castle was founded in 1090 by Norman Baron Robert de Romille, who built a primitive fort with timber ramparts to stop marauding Scots during their frequent raids into the north of England. The stone castle seen today was begun in the 1300’s and is one of the most complete and well preserved medieval castles in England. Fully roofed and with an enchanting Tudor courtyard and Yew tree, the castle provides an intimate insight into the lives of it’s inhabitants.
