Famous around the world for On Ilkla' Moor Baht 'At, the song which celebrates it and which is now pretty much Yorkshire's 'national anthem', Ilkley Moor looms over the genteel West Yorkshire town of Ilkley.

Ilkley's been the site of numerous UFO sightings out on the moor, Jimi Hendrix once played here at the Troutbeck Hotel, the town is the home of a very famous tea shop, and an annual literary festival is held here which attracts some very big names like Benjamin Zephaniah, Jamie Oliver and Ian Rankin to name but three!

But, it's the moor which it could be argued MAKES Ilkley. With the Cow and Calf Rocks, White Wells perched on top, and all that heather - it just can't be beaten if you want a true taste of West Yorkshire!


Getting there...

You can't miss the moors once you get to Ilkley, which is easily reachable on the A65 heading towards Skipton. There are also regular bus and train services to the town.

The Lowdown...
Ilkley Moor is simply one of THE places to go and experience for those who are West Yorkshire born-and-bred and tourists alike! Don't miss it...
