Holiday Day 2 – Skipton Castle

Today we decided to invite my parents and my grandma up to Skipton to take them out for lunch, so that my grandma could enjoy the sunshine. Then Vicky decided to come home from Sheffield for a few days so she came along too and it was a nice family day out. As they didn’t arrive until lunch time, Cameron and I decided to go to Skipton Castle in the morning. Neither of us could remember going there before and it was actually quite interesting. It’s 900 years old, and one of the oldest castles with the roof still intact. It cost £7 to get in, which I think was a bit steep, but it was a very enjoyable couple of hours, even if we did feel like we were going to fall down the spiral staircases, and even if Cameron forgot how tall he was and banged his head on a low door.

After the castle, we met my family for lunch at the Devonshire Arms in Skipton (a Wetherspoons pub), and then after a walk along Skipton high street, we all came back to the caravan to sit for a drink in the sunshine. Perfect.
