This evening, Yorkshire’s very own breathtaking underground wonder, Stump Cross Caverns, will take centre stage in the much-loved series “The Hotel Inspector.” The third episode of the show’s 18th season, aptly titled “Into the Abyss,” promises an in-depth look at one of the region’s most treasured family-run attractions. Set deep within the Yorkshire Dales, this historic site offers visitors an extraordinary journey into the earth’s past, but, as viewers will see, it’s an adventure that faces modern-day challenges.
Alex Polizzi, renowned for her hotel expertise and forthright advice, delves into the operational depths of Stump Cross Caverns. Known for her dedication to turning around the fortunes of various establishments across the country, Polizzi’s insights into the tourism industry are as sharp as they are invaluable. Tonight, she’ll navigate the complex labyrinth of sustaining a business that’s as unique as the ancient caverns themselves.
Our CEO, Linda Scott, had the distinct opportunity to be present during the filming, offering insights and participating in this crucial discourse on tourism and heritage conservation. Linda’s presence underscores Yorkshire.com’s commitment to supporting and promoting the diverse array of attractions that Yorkshire has to offer, highlighting the inherent challenges and potential within our region’s tourism sector.
It was a sunny and blustery day when filming took place, you can probably see from this picture of Linda standing with owner-operator, Oliver Bowerman.
