Visit Ingleton

Ingleton is a village in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, towards the western border of both the National Park and the county of North Yorkshire.

A traditional Yorkshire village, dominated by the large viaduct across the valley of the Swilla Glen, it is a pleasure to explore the narrow streets and the various small shops and eateries and to take a look at the Church of Saint Mary, most notable for the 800 year old font it contains (the church itself is Victorian).

Ingleton is best known for the walks that start from here. These include:

1) The ascent of Ingleborough, one of the 'Three Peaks' of the Yorkshire Dales

2) The very picturesque Ingleton Waterfalls Trail, a walk of nearly five miles that follows several different river courses and passes through attractive ancient woodlands, with lovely views of various waterfalls along the way including Thornton Force, Beezley Falls, Rival Falls and Snow falls (see the official Ingleton Waterfalls Trail Guide for more details).

3) The Three Peaks Challenge - a 25 mile walk that crosses all three of the Three Peaks.

Other popular attractions close to the tourist-focussed village of Ingleton include the caves at White Scar Caves and Ingleborough Cave. Ingleton tourist information centre (next to the car park) has more local information when you visit, including various other local walks.

You can find more local travel ideas in the Yorkshire Dales guide and the North Yorkshire guide.
