Travelling on Thursday - Sites around Kettlewell

Two places that I really hope will be on our agenda while we are in Kettlewell are a return visit to Skipton Castle and a trip to Bettys in Harrogate.

Skipton Castle is an amazingly well-preserved medieval castle.  The tour is self-guided with the help of a map and placards on the walls of the various rooms to tell you where you are and how the room was used.  Vic and I really enjoyed our visit here last time we were in Skipton and I hope Sophia, Marc and Alex are up for a visit this time.  We plan to spend the day in Skipton, visiting the castle and, weather permitting, having a browse through the market.  That will no doubt be followed by something delicious at a local tea room.

A new trip this time will be to Bettys in Harrogate.  This is an excellent post from Emma over at Awkward Magazine and I've borrowed a photo from the post to tempt you to head over there to read all about Bettys Afternoon Tea.

"the most magical of places, a real traditional elegance that is rarely found anymore" - Perfectly said, Emma!
