White Scar Cave

White Scar Cave

Overview

White Scar Cave, Britain’s longest show cave, enjoys a magnificent setting in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Visit the show cave and experience the natural wonders of the subterranean world without having to dress in special gear and lug equipment around. Paths and lights let you walk past cascading waterfalls, and between massive banks of flowstone, to the enormous ice-age cavern with its thousands of stalactites.
