How Stean Gorge

This spectacular 20 metre deep limestone gorge provides an action packed day out for all the family! At almost 1km long it can be explored via a network of narrow paths, bridges, tunnels and caves. More adventurous visitors can challenge themselves with the Via Ferrata course - an aerial network of beams, ladders and cables - one of only two in England, or take part in outdoor activities such as climbing, canoeing or caving. There is also a tearoom serving delicious homemade food, a post office, a small shop, a children’s play area and a campsite.

Where: Lofthouse, seven miles north of Pateley Bridge

Opening times: Open seven days a week from 9am to 5pm, including Post Office
