The Rolls Royce Leisure Club, open to non-members, is a 10 minute walk. The club is part of the local Rolls Royce complex and was created for Rolls Royce employees, but is open to the public for food, drink, leisure activities and entertainment. Set in it's own grounds, with bowling green and children's play area. The restaurant serves great food and good local beers at low, subsidised prices.
Skipton- As the gateway to the magnificent Yorkshire Dales, people travel the length and breadth of the country to visit this charming market town. With its famous 900 year old castle, romantic ruined priory and historic cobbled High Street.
The Yorkshire Dales National Park encompasses thousands of square miles of moors, valleys, hills and villages- Stone-built villages sit amongst traditional farming landscapes of field barns, drystone walls and flower-rich hay meadows, and show how the area has been shaped over thousands of years by the people who have lived and worked here. Spectacular waterfalls and ancient broadleaved woodland contrast with the scattered remains of former mine workings and other rural industries which remind us of the area's rich industrial heritage.See our other locations
