Local area

With a historic town centre featuring well-preserved Victorian architecture, wide shopping streets and a range of local businesses, the beautiful spa town of Ilkley sits approximately 12 miles north of Bradford and 17 miles northwest of Leeds.

Lovers of the outdoors will enjoy ample access to countryside and the stunning rural landscapes of the Yorkshire Dales. For keen hikers and cyclists, access to the Dales Way, an 84-mile walk through the dales and Lake District, can be found just outside of town via the Old Bridge. The landmark Cow and Calf rocks overlook the town on Ilkley Moor.

The town also offers a rich sense of heritage with plenty of lovingly maintained Victorian architecture including an original arcade that has been carefully re-purposed to create covered walkways for pedestrians to enjoy, whatever the weather. Browse a variety of local boutiques and stores including Lishman’s of Ilkley, a celebrated butchers that has won regional and local affection thanks to its passion for quality and personal service.

A selection of galleries and museums offer plenty to entertain active culture seekers. The Manor House includes a number of locally-found prehistoric artefacts including manuscripts and documents, whilst the Ilkley toy museum houses toys that date as far back as 350 BC.
