Community at the Vaults

At the Vaults, we foster inclusive and extensive links with the surrounding community.

If you are interested in finding out more about the local groups we currently host and avenues through which to join them, please read below.


Local Clubs


Ilkley Cycling Club

The Vaults provides a fun and vibrant meeting ground for the Ilkley Cycling Club every Thursday night once they have finished their evening ride. Upon arrival the cyclists satisfy their hunger with an extensive range of cask ales and wines before being treated to a selection of hot food snacks which often includes chips, samosas, garlic bread and much more.

Out The Saddle – Michael Harris

 Out The Saddle print works can be found littered around
the Vaults. Their creater Michael Harris is a keen cyclist
and is often found having a pint following one of his rides
in the local area, which are the inspiration for
his pristine prints.

Language for Fun

Language for Fun is a local, fun, relaxed class for people who want to learn Spanish or French. People of all abilities are welcome. There are no tests or compulsory homework and it is a great way to socialise with like-minded people with an enthusiastic teacher. Spanish classes are held at the Vaults every Tuesday evening and French classes are held at the Vaults every Thursday evening.
