Keighley lies in the heart of West Yorkshire, easily accessible from a wide area by car, bus and train. With a fascinating history, and many Victorian and Edwardian buildings still in use, Keighley is truly a town where the past meets the present.

At the heart of the town is the Airedale Shopping Centre, with many well-known 'High Street' names, a central café and pleasant surroundings. But, don't forget, there are lots more shopping opportunities in the independent retailers around town and in the indoor market.

Shopping in Keighley is made even more convenient with an excellent shopmobility scheme, lots of free and reasonably priced car parking, a train line linking Keighley direct with North Yorkshire, Bradford, Leeds and even London. There are also plenty of cycle racks for the fitter visitor.

The bus station is in the heart of the town and could not be more convenient for the shops. It has recently undergone a £3.5M re-build and now offers undercover access to all buses, offering a convenient and pleasurable experience for visitors.

But you don't have to be a shopper to enjoy Keighley. Leisure, pleasure and sporting facilities are plentiful in the town centre and surrounding area. So if you are looking for attractions, places to visit and things to do and see have browse through the 'Local Info' section.
