Skipton was a rural district in the West Riding of Yorkshire from 1894 to 1974. It was named after Skiptonmarker, which constituted an urban district on its southern border.

The district was expanded in 1937 by taking in the parishes of Steeton with Eastburnmarker and Sutton-in-Cravenmarker from the disbanded Keighley Rural District.

It was abolished in 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, and was split three ways. The parishes of Addingham, Kildwickmarker and Steeton with Eastburnmarker went to the Metropolitan Borough of Bradfordmarker in West Yorkshire; the parishes of Bracewell, Brogden and Salterforthmarker became part of the Pendlemarker district of Lancashiremarker, with the rest going to the Craven district of North Yorkshire.
