This grade I listed building was saved from demolition in 1955 and given to the town. I'm not sure what decisions led it to be in the hands of Bradford Council but there you are. Ilkley is a lovely town and deserves a heritage centre...More

sadly due to council cuts the manor house had to shut down but there is one hope a volunteer group might take it over but don't come a long way to find it boarded up.

The Manor House was a delightful small museum in an historic building by the Church. It included relics of Ilkley's Roman and prehistoric past.

The Museum Manor house itself is a wonderfull building. The fireplace in original condition has well described artifacts , clearly explained. Also some very impressive Roman gravestones which have carvings of a family group , amazing ! Would recommend this Museum .

Stumbled on this after a meal at a local restaurant. Had a photographic competition that my wife and I were ablr to vote on which was good. The museum itself was an interesting insite into the history of Ilkley.

The old building is attractive as well as interesting and there are just enough exhibits and displays about the history of the town for the museum to do its job in summarising local heritage

It's worth a look around this small but interesting museum. It's also free. We only spent a short time looking around (about 30 mins) but thought it was a great little place. It's also worth a look in the church next door to see the...More
