The picturesque town of Ilkley is situated in the Wharfe Valley, at the southern end of the Yorkshire Dales. The former spa town rose to fame in the nineteenth century when thousands visited for the fresh invigorating air and first class hotels. The town may no longer be a premier health resort but it is still renowned for its fresh air, moorland and beautiful countryside with a selection of quality accommodation.
The town is famous for its moor and throughout the town there is a passion for the outdoors. Proud to be a Walkers are Welcome town, due to the fantastic surrounding countryside, walks for all abilities and its commitment to welcoming walkers. The town is also home to one of the largest cycling clubs in the country.
Ilkley is the ideal place to relax and treat yourself. There are excellent restaurants and independent shops selling everything from gifts to vintage clothes and books. Or why not visit when one of the many events are taking place such as the Ilkley Literature Festival, Ilkley Film Festival and Ilkley Summer festival.
