Settle Essentials

Trails and trains around Settle

Ramblers flock to Settle and it’s easy to see why. With its own natural landmark, the “Castleberg Crag”, a bustling market square and a Grade II Victorian theatre, this picturesque town is an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding Dales. Stroll around the scars, caves and cliffs overlooking the town. Or jump on board the famous Settle to Carlisle Railway as you glide over Victorian viaducts, past colourful stations and through narrow tunnels on England’s most scenic railway. 

Perfectly preserved

Now the home of the Museum of North Craven Life, The Folly hosts both permanent and temporary exhibitions that tell the story of North Craven, its landscape and people all housed in this historic building built in the 1670s. And if live music, theatre, world cinema and art exhibitions are your thing, the Victoria Hall caters for all at this Grade II listed and beautifully preserved Victorian venue.
