Social Media

Welcome to Skipton actively uses Facebook to promote everything great about Skipton and there are over 5500 followers from all over the country and the world!

Instagram is used to attract a younger audience and has over 1500 followers so if you would like to promote your business or an event contact and utilise these fantastic platforms available to you free of charge.


As part of the rebrand a professional photographer was commissioned to capture key scenes around the town. The images have now been uploaded to the new Welcome to Skipton Flickr account and are free to use for all BID levy payers. The images will be added to over time by the partners involved in the project.

You simply need to go to the page  Welcome To Skipton’s albums | Flickr  and download the images you require, there are some which need to be credited to the photographer. If you need any assistance with using Flickr please get in touch.
