One Minute from the Hustle and Bustle of Skipton High Street
Archway to Victoria Square.


Away from the hustle and bustle of Skipton High Street but not a one minute walk away is Victoria Square. A quieter, alternative shopping area.

Whether you're looking for a new outfit that's a bit different to those your friends wear or just fancy a cup of tea away from the noise of the High Street, Victoria Square is likely to have something for you to have a nosy at.

If vibrant, floaty or statement clothes don't take your fancy perhaps a trinket or a reminder of your visit to Skipton could be found here, in 'Peek-a-boo' or 'Avena'.

The Shops of Victoria Square, Skipton.


If your legs are feeling a bit weary and you pass the age limit then how about hiring a mobility scooter from 'ECM Healthcare' for the day, while you potter about Skipton's other wonderful and eye-catching attractions. If you're unfortunate enough to not pass the age limit then how about a cup of tea or coffee from 'Spencer's Cafe Bistro'?

A night out on the town or a wedding day could totally be changed for you with a purchase from 'Beryl II Shoes', making you the diva in the lime light with everyone wanting to know where you got those shoes.

Maybe you collect glassware, Border Fine Arts or china ornaments? Then 'Paul Smiths China' is the shop for you to visit in Victoria Square. With a huge variety of ornaments and china there is sure to be something that you just have to take home with you, whether as a gift or a souvenir.

Perhaps the best thing about Victoria Square is the average price range it comes with, with everything priced averagely and nothing over pricey, simply what it's worth.

From trinkets to clothes. From tea breaks to mobility scooters. Victoria Square has something to spark anyone's interest and is defiantly a place not to be missed on a visit to Skipton. So, whether a tourist or a resident, give Victoria Square a chance.

Avena. Trinkets, Garden Ornaments, Herbal health.


To find Victoria Square turn through the archway with 'Mo's', ladies clothes shop and, 'Max Spielman', camera shop either side. Alternatively the archway is opposite 'Edinburgh Woollen' Mill at the bottom end of town.
