Welcome to Walker Smale Ilkley
We opened our Ilkley Office in 1996, now over 20 years ago! Located on the entrance to Station Road, with Railway Station next door, the office enjoys a high profile position on one of the main routes into the thriving former spa town centre. Our bright, modern office provides a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere and is very accessible with free parking for two hours in the nearby Tescos car park. We enjoy excellent footfall, with passers-by heading from Tescos in to the town centre and also the many people who use the Railway for commuting to the larger commercial centres of Leeds and Bradford.
