White Scar Cave, Ingleton

#2 of 15 in Nature in Yorkshire Dales National Park
A network of caves White Scar Cave features one of the longest-known cave chambers in Britain. You can even see helictites, cave formations that grow spirally, sideways, and every which way. In addition to touring this fascinating underground world, a cafe and a gift shop are also present. Stop by the visitor’s center to see a large-scale plan of the cave system, historic photographs, and material about nearby places of interest. Pay special attention if you are the last of the day to tour the caves. It is rumored a disembodied, murmuring voice follows the last guide out of the cave.

  • Really good fun. I went with my 9 year old and we both loved it. The rock forms and the waterfalls are amazing. The guide was knowledgeable and gave us good information about how the cave was formed and later discovered. Great day out. There is a little cafe outside for hot snacks and drinks.
  • Unusual attraction. Tour took 1.5 hours. Staff and guide friendly and knowlegeable. You need to be relatively able-bodied to negotiate low passageway in parts plus a few flights of stairs. Nice cafe. Large car park. Enjoyable outing suitable for both adults and children.
