One of the best-preserved medieval castles in the whole of England, Skipton Castle has survived over 900 years of history. Originally a motte and bailey castle built in 1090, the castle was reinforced with stone in 1102 to withstand attacks from the Scots. Later, during the English Civil War, the castle became the last Royalist stronghold in the north until it eventually surrendered in 1645 at the end of a three-year siege. Visitors to the castle today can explore the depths of its dungeon and see the yew tree planted by Lady Anne Clifford in 1659 to commemorate the repairs made to the castle after the siege.
