Area Information

Giggleswick
Situated on the banks of the River Ribble, this picturesque village is perhaps best known for its famous private school, Giggleswick School. However, visitors to the village will love the gorgeous views over Pen y Ghent and its historic and beautiful cottages, many of which date as far back as the 17th century. In the village there is St Alkelda's Church, which is thought to have been built in the 12th century, and two local pubs whichs serve food. Nearby, the market town of Settle has a variety of shops and cafes to enjoy, all within easy walking distance of the village. The limestone crag outside of the village by Buckhaw Brow is very popular with rock climbers and visitors may also enjoy guided tours of the local caves, particularly in nearby Ingleton. Giggleswick is served by the Giggleswick Railway Station, where trains run 5 times a day.
