About this spot
Ilkley Moor is a location made famous by the folk song 'On Ilkla Moor Baht 'at', and it's no wonder that it inspired such a well known (locally, at least) piece of music as it has something for everyone. Located close to Leeds, it's a popular destination for the people of West Yorkshire and gives you views, interesting rocks and even waterfalls on the wetter days. Ilkley itself is a lovely town too, with a number of pubs and cafes and, of interest to some, a branch of Bettys Cafe Tea Rooms.
