Settle is a busy market town and the gateway to the Three Peaks. Ingleton village is situated close to the Three Peaks in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is surrounded by beautiful countryside, magnificent mountains and waterfalls. Lying on the east-west routes over the Pennines that were used in prehistoric and Roman days, the area attracts walkers, cavers and pot holers throughout the year.
Local attractions include Britain's longest show cave, White Scar Cave as well as the Waterfalls Walk which takes visitors through ancient woodland and close to some splendid waterfalls and gorges. Ingleton is an attractive market town with a network of winding narrow streets to explore. The market place offers an array of gift shops, galleries and an open market on Fridays. The Yorkshire Dales Falconry and Conservation Centre in Settle houses 40 birds of prey including vultures, kites, eagles, falcons and owls. The Settle to Carlisle railway line was constructed between 1869 and 1877 and is a 72 mile long route which runs across the dramatic 24 arched Ribblehead Viaduct and down into the long tunnel at Blea Moor, eventually leaving the Dales and entering the Eden Valley with its gently rolling hills and market towns, finishing at the city of Carlisle.
