The fact that this stage of the race has been christened ‘The Yorkshire Terrier’ says it all!

Skipton is a great place to watch the Tour de Yorkshire and there’ll be lots going on in the town on Sunday 6 May with plenty of opportunity to browse around the town centre and enjoy lunch in one of the many pubs, cafes and restaurants. After you’ve watched the cycling, why not enjoy a stroll along the canal or exploring Skipton’s ancient castle?
