Skipton is a small historic market town and despite its pocket size it has plenty on offer to visitors. Skipton Castle is one of the town’s major attractions; still standing after 900 years it is one of the best preserved medieval castles in the country and is well worth a visit at any time of year. Skipton also has a beautiful historic cobbled high street and prides itself on being a gateway to the Yorkshire Dales. Additionally, it is possible to take in the charming scenery of Skipton by land or by water as the charming Leeds-Liverpool canal runs through the town and makes for a delightfully alternative way to experience it.
Whether exploring by water, on foot, or even in the skies by a locally offered hot air balloon ride, take some simple steps to ensure your personal safety and avoid having a travel accident compensation claim when in Skipton.
What kind of travel accidents occur in Skipton?
The historic cobbled stones in Skipton’s high street are charming to wander around, however, the uneven paving can make visitors more likely to suffer a slip, trip or a fall. This risk is higher in wet weather so if possible visit Skipton on a sunny day, and wear sensible footwear to minimise your risk of having a slip or a fall in a sudden downpour.
Similarly, the canal in Skipton is extremely enjoyable to travel on by boat, or equally on foot along the canal paths. These paths however, can sometimes become muddy and slippery in wet weather, so take care to use handrails where provided and if possible avoid areas where the path may become uneven and likely to cause a trip or fall.
