Ingleborough Cave claims to be the prettiest show cave in the Yorkshire Dales and when you venture into awe-inspiring cave formations, its hard to disagree. The cave was first entered in 1837, and celebrated 175 years of visitors in 2012. While times have changed massively on the outside world in that time, Ingleborough Cave itself has changed little over the decades.
The Yorkshire Dales is one of the best places in the country to go caving and potholing, so it makes sense to go with a trusted company that has been operating for years.
