White Scar Cave, Ingleton

4.6
#2 of 9 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.

    It may be the longest show caves in the UK, and has a few interesting features but the tour itself was quite tedious at times. The viewing platforms etc became overcrowded so it wasn't always clear wh...  more »

  • Excellent way to spend 90 minutes. The tour takes you 300 feet under ground on a half mile walk through tunnels and caves. It was an amazing experience seeing waterfall, caves, stalagmites and stalactites. The walk is fun especially the parts where you have to bend down as the ceiling is lower. The occasional "bop" of the hard helmet and a giggle from other people taking part in the tour is always funny. Highly recommended you visit here for a not every day experience.
  • A little pricey but it's a good experience. The guides are clearly extremely knowledgeable. They do keep mentioning an underground lake you won't get to see though.
  • Great tour, very informative guides. Wasn't rushed so you get time to get to know the place take a few shots and get your questions answered. Tour lasts about an hour.
  • Good day out take the kids too... Bit cold inside of the caves further you get in...... but enjoyable all the same. The history behind the finding of the cave are fascinating...... Don't forget the camera!!
  • Really interesting. Amazing caves and great tour guides we had nervous nelly!! Wrap up warm and wear good shoes. Loved it
