Settle

Nestled in the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park, Settle is a thriving historic Market Town surrounded by dramatic limestone crags steep fells and walled fields. This is a land of more sheep than people, the perfect place to get away from it all, relax and breath. 

Settle is a hub for tourists who come here to soak up the limestone and glacial scenery, the close proximity to waterfalls, caves and the potholes of the famous 'Three Peaks' area. This idyllic town is perhaps best known as the starting point of the scenic Settle-Carlisle railway. Which, is the perfect way to arrive here.

This historic town has a market charter dating back to the 12th century. The market still takes place every Tuesday and the offer of the town year round is enough to attract the most discerning visitor. There are few towns left where independant shops make up over 90% of the retail and hospitality offer and Settle is one of them. There are beautiful cafe's, gallerys, restaurants and more.

Settle is the home of Settle Stories and our new venue The Joinery. And, there are many other arts and cultural attractions here too. Our very own Listening Gallery is a world first in an old phone box, this is a permenant attraction open year round. There's also the worlds smallest visual art gallery in a phone box, Gallery on the Green. It all happens in Settle!

The town also boast the oldest music hall in the world, Settle Victoria Hall, and the neighbouring village of Giggleswick is home to the Richard Whiteley Theatre. The Museum of North Craven Life is not to be missed either, in Settle's stunning grade 1 listed Folly. 

Settle also boasts a range of gallerys and studios, including Gavagan Art, Studio Vault, Settle Glass Studio and gallery and many more creative little shops.
