This was on my husband's bucket list and I was quite apprehensive but agreed to do it with him. I have to say it was amazing! It takes about an hour and a half to walk from Clapham Car Park and when we booked in we were told it would be a two hour wait - which it was. We... More

This is definitely a 'must do'. The whole set up is well organised with an emphasis on safety but is not 'over sanitised'. Yes, it is a good walk to get there, yes, you will get wet, no, there are no toilets or other facilities but the whole experience is worth the effort. The Craven Pothole Club members are enthusiastic... More

The gaping gill experience was great being lowered down into the cave exploring the main cavern and coming back up. You wouldn't get to do anything like that on a regular basis unless your joined a pot holing club. I do agree with other TripAdvisor members that the organisation of the events need to improve. We arrived at the gill... More

Although the cave itself was impressive, the organisation was poor. Waited just over four hours to go down the cave and almost an hour to come back up? No communication by the staff about timings. No refreshments to purchase.

we deliberately arrived early at 9am (it is an hour and a quarter walk from clapham village) as we knew that the gill is very popular on the few weekends that it is open. We were pleased to be told that we would be able to go down at 10.30, so we spent the hour and half walking up ingleborough,... More

Impressive cavern, well worth going down. Be prepared for a 2 to 3 hour wait. Book in then go for a walk up Ingleborough, you would be half way up it anyway. Take a torch for the cavern, it's very dark down there until your eyes become accustomed, it's easy to trip on the uneven ground. Great experience.

I visited Gaping Gill whilst on my climb to the top of Ingleborough. On a nice day it is a good walk to the pot hole on its own without getting involved with the steeper slopes to the summit of Ingleborough its self.It has a high regard amonst pot holers as it is the entrance to a vast underground cave...

A scenic route to approach Ingleborough Hill if you want to climb it via Little Ingleborough. Can be slippery in wet weather.

Deep in the Yorkshire Dales lies an abyss called Gaping Gill. A waterfall drops 365 feet into a cave which you could fit an averaged size cathedral into. You get there by leaving your car in a little village called Clapham., then after walking along the pleasant dales for an hour you come across what looks like an Everest base... More
