Town Twinning

Skipton is twinned with two European towns:


Located in Bavaria on the Germany/Austria border, Skipton has been twinned with Simbach for over thirty years - and very strong links exist between the two towns, including well-supported Twinning Associations in both Skipton and Simbach.


Located in the north of France, close to Lille, Erquinghem-Lys has very close associations with the former Duke of Wellington's Regiment (now the Yorkshire Regiment) and the two towns twinned in 2009.
