Known as the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, Skipton is a small but thriving market town with a high percentage of summer visitors. Although there are few toy shops in Skipton, many local general independent shops will sell a selection of toys, games, models and hobby equipment, and nearby towns also offer some great selections.
Model makers are lucky to have two good model shops in the town. Between them, Craven Model Centre in Mount Pleasant and Metcalfe Models & Toys in Essbottom sell construction kits and toys by most of the leading brands. Skipton toy shops provide customers with a small range of toys including the ever important pocket money items.
