Spectacular
Sep 2021
We were lucky enough to be passing in our motorhome and found a space to park to admire this spectacular site. Sadly we did not have time to walk over to the viaduct but were impressed by it, I doubt you could get the feel of it if you were passing over it in a train, it needs to be seen from a distance. So glad we were able to stop for just a short t8me.

A must see

Breathtaking. An amazing piece of engineering. If you think it looks big from the road wait till you stand underneath it. Iconic. A must see. Easy parking close by with about a half mile walk on a fairly level path.

Very photogenic
Sep 2021 • Couples
Visited on a hot September morning. Stunning piece of architecture with great paths and photo opportunities.

We travelled by train from Settle, just 10 minutes away, spent an hour walking around and photographing the viaduct and then headed back on the next train back to Settle.

Well worth a visit.

Captivating Viaduct & Picturesque scenery
Aug 2021
Visited this place on a Bright 20 degrees Celsius, August Day.
It is a mesmerising, serene and ecstatic place for an evening walk.
Love each steps taken. ❤️
The viaduct is an impressive cultural heritage; the architecture, the height, and tips you are fortunate you will see the train …
Wish it was closer to my home for daily walks, unfortunately ….
Excellent place for photographers.
Food truck seller available right on the main road.
Time spent 1 hour or even more.

Swarms of ants
Aug 2021 • Family
We were passing so stopped for a wander to the viaduct and an ice cream. Looks amazing from a distance however on the path that lead down from the road, it was absolutely swarming with flying ants! Not just a few, the whole place was covered, including me! Impressive structure but very busy with cars along the road.

A worthwhile stop
Aug 2021
We visted en route to our holiday cottage. It is most impressive as it comes into view, seemingly out of nowhere. There are a number of places to park, the most convenient being near the station where there is a pub, an ice cream van and another selling hot drinks. We didn't try any of them as we'd brought a picnic.

It was then a short walk to the base of the viaduct to admire this impressive feat of engineering, even more so when you consider it was built long before all the technology available today. The path was wheelchair accessible, although a bit uneven in places.

We only had time for a short walk, but it was a worthwhile stop on our journey. Not to be missed if you are in the area.

Take a trip!

Wet and grey day yes, but as the wind and clouds swept in, it took on a more formidable look, standing etched on the sky line. Beautiful and for all our advances not sure whether many will stand the test of time as well as this structure

Wow!
Aug 2021 • Family
We visited mid morning, plenty of vehicles parked on the verge, you wouldn’t think it was busy when you get to the Viaduct.
Easily walkable if you need to park further up, you could potentially manage if you mobility issues and use a wheel chair.
Once your off the road it’s safe to let the kids run along a little.
We took our dog on a long lead and stayed away from the roaming sheep.
By some complete accident we arrived, walked around and then a steam train chugged across the Viaduct. We felt very lucky.

Information:
No toilets, we visited the pub and bought a Diet Coke and used their facilities. Lovely pub.
They take card.
There is an information centre a few hundred yards away. We didn’t visit, we walked back up the hill and had a picnic.

I’ve cream hut near the little car park.

Tea hut near the little car park.

We then drove to Hardraw Force and back to Hawes, then on our way home we visited Wensleydale ice cream parlour!

Our title says it all really, easy parking near the pub followed by a easy walk on an easy pathway. Amazing views well worth a visit.

An Engineering Masterpiece
Jul 2021
I have seen the viaduct on TV but nothing prepares you for meeting its magnificence in person!
Who needs Pont du Gard? (which I highly recommend!) This really is a majestic piece of our engineering heritage which sits beautifully in the landscape.
We stayed and ate at the Station Pub, which I highly recommend.
