The village of Ingleton is surrounded by magnificent countryside with caves, waterfalls, and mountains. The village has interesting and unusual shops and very good food is served in the pubs.
Ingleton is noted for:
The Three Peaks
The "Three Peaks" of Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent dominate the skyline of the western part of the Yorkshire Dales national park.
Although not the highest mountains in the country, these spectacular and distinctively shaped fells are undoubtedly impressive, towering as they do over the surrounding moors and countryside near Settle, Ingleton, and Ribblehead - and they are of course very popular with walkers, climbers and ramblers.

Deep Beneath Ingleborough Hill in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, lies a hidden world which has been sculptured by nature over thousands of years. Imagine a subterranean landscape, beautifully lit, with gushing streams and waterfalls, exotic cave formations, and a huge ice-age cavern adorned with thousands of stalactites. Click here for website

Ribblehead viaduct is just over the border from Cumbria into North Yorkshire, and is the most impressive structure on the Settle-Carlisle Railway. Hundreds of railway builders ("navvies") lost their lives building the line, from a combination of accidents, fights, and smallpox outbreaks. In particular, building the Ribblehead (then Batty Moss) viaduct, with its 24 massive stone arches 104 feet (32 metres) above the moor, caused such loss of life that the railway paid for an expansion of the local graveyard.
