Tour de Yorkshire

World-class cycling comes to Skipton – again!

The perfect Yorkshire hotel for cycling fans

Following on from the crucial role Skipton played in the Grand Depart of the 2014 Tour de France, we’re absolutely delighted that the 2018 Tour de Yorkshire will once again pass through our town on Sunday 6 May.

Appropriately nicknamed ‘The Yorkshire Terrier’, stage four starts Halifax’s spectacular and newly restored Piece Hall, before passing through Hebden Bridge and Haworth. Skipton is the next stop before the cyclists have to tackle Barden Moor and the challenging climbs of the Yorkshire Dales.

Skipton is a fantastic place to watch world-class cycling such as this and as fans will know, the spectacle of professional cyclists speeding through the town centre is pretty hard to beat. Our hotel is located on the outskirts of Skipton on the bank of the town’s picturesque canal and is the ideal base from which to watch all the cycling action. We’re just a short walk from the town centre and thanks to our commitment to welcoming cyclists; we can provide you with secure cycle storage if you’re planning on brining your own bike.

Dedicated fans of the Tour de Yorkshire will doubtless already know that Stage 2 of the race on Friday 4 May will pass through the nearby towns of Otley and Ilkley, so if you’re planning on joining us to watch Stage 4, why not make a weekend of it and enjoy two days of cycle racing?
