Tour de France Centre Opening Hours

On Saturday 5th July and Sunday 6th July, Yorkshire will host the start of the Tour de France. Known as the Grand Départ, it is the official start of the world’s greatest cycle race. The race route and road closures will significantly affect vehicle access to and from the Centre. Our neighbours Skipton RFC are also hosting camping and associated facilities for the event and as such have use of the majority of the car park from Friday 4th July, which will mean very limited parking on the Friday & all weekend.

Bearing this in mind, along with the thousands of spectators expected, the Centre’s opening hours over the Tour de France weekend are:

Friday 4th July – Open until 7pm (very limited parking available and the roads expected to be really busy, so please give extra time to travel).

Saturday 5th July – Closed.

Sunday 6th July – Open as normal from 8:45am (very limited parking available, also please give extra time to travel as the roads around Craven & Skipton are still expected to be really busy).

We hope you all enjoy the event!
