Middleton has long been regarded as Ilkley's prime residential area, with its recent history dating back to the release of plots for development by the local land owners in the late 19th Century. The area now provides a highly desirable living environment orientated to the south and with a breadth of impressive architecture. Middleton is home to Ilkley's cricket and rugby clubs, and also the swimming pool and renowned lido complex. A short walk over the historic 'old bridge' leads to Ilkley Lawn Tennis and Squash club, and a couple of local public houses. Ilkley's town centre is less than a mile distant and is well known for its first class shopping environment, busy social round and cultural amenities. The riverside parks are ideal for families, whilst the surrounding moors and open countryside of this unspoilt stretch of Wharfedale offer many an opportunity for rural pursuits.

Ilkley is ideally positioned for those who need to travel with West and North Yorkshire business districts being within comfortable daily travelling distance. From Ilkley's 'Metro' railway station there are frequent services throughout the day into the cities of Leeds and Bradford, with onward connections from Leeds to London Kings Cross. Leeds Bradford International Airport is just some 11 miles drive from the town.
