The historic market town of Settle is located in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.

It's a popular spot with ramblers, cyclists and nature lovers and renowned for its outdoor market and railway line.

Settle is an ideal starting point for exploring the Dales. Take a walk around the different caves and the cliffs that overlook the town and see natural landmarks such as the Castlebergh Crag. Settle is on both The Ribble Way and the Pennine Bridleway.

For cyclists there is the famous Way of the Roses Route and walkers can rise to the occasion with the Three Peak challenge

For a more relaxing day, board the train on the famous Settle - Carlisle railway and cross the Ribblehead Viaduct, see the Yorkshire Three Peaks — Pen-y-Ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside — and enjoy the scenery of the Eden Valley.

Immerse yourself in the cultural heritage of the region and visit the Museum of North Craven Life, in The Folly. The museum in this 17th-century building features local history displays, relating the story of North Craven.

Victoria Hall is the place to go if you have an interest in the arts. Here you can view live music performance, theatre, art exhibitions and world cinema.

Make the most of your visit to browse Settle’s famous market and the town’s independent shops. You’ll find clothing, fish, fruit and veg and other quality goods on this popular market.
