Really enjoyed these caves. To get to them you realistically need to walk through a woodland that charges you a pound a person and requires exact change and park in the £5 a day National Park car park, though there are alternatives to both of...More

Without going on and on, the walk up to the cave was nice and the village of Clapham is beautiful. However, Ingleborough Cave is definitely not the UK’s premier show cave and should not be advertised as such. White Scar cave just a few minutes...More

I went to the Ingleborough cave, expecting something unusual. Not only was this unusual, it was also a remarkable and awesome place. I arrived around 1 p.m. I paid an entrance fee (£ 9) and joined a small group of enthusiastic visitors. Our guide was...More

A very interesting place to visit. But be warned it’s a bit of a walk upto the caves. You follow a very well maintained Path upto the caves and its all up hill. This was my first visit to any caves so unable to compare...More

On a wet and dreary day, we arrived at the start of the ingleborough trail with trepidation as to what lay ahead. In all honesty we weren't expecting much, especially as we had no change for the machine to pay a walking toll (there's a...More

We loved this fascinating and spectacular view of the Yorkshire Underworld. Easy access to something most of us would never see. Knowledgable and friendly guides explain what's happening and point out all the history, highlights and unusual formations. Lovely trail walk to the caves too!

We had a fab tour of the caves today. Our 6 year old loved it and enjoyed every second of the tour with John (our guide). He kept it fun and interesting. Great attraction and the walk along waterfall trail was stunning.

Hi, you can’t, no. You park in Clapham village and walk through the Ingleborough Estate Nature Trail (1.3 miles) to get to the Cave. For the less able, we have an all terrain powered wheelchair that is available for hire... More
