Stump Cross Caverns | Greenhow Hill
Stump Cross Caverns is one of Britain's premier show caves, located in Nidderdale on the border of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and situated right on the Way of the roses cycle route just before arriving at the town of Pateley Bridge. offering a range of facilities for a great family day out, including a gift shop and tea room as well as the caves themselves.
The formation of Stump Cross Caverns began millions of years ago, when the area which is now the Yorkshire Dales was covered by oceans. Sediment from the ocean floor would eventually form limestone, the basic material from which the caves are made.
The centre includes our spacious tea rooms, serving a variety of meals, cakes and desserts, as well as a wide selection of hot and cold drinks.
Patrons may work up an appetite touring the expansive caves underground, and many visitors find that a meal or drink in the cafe is the perfect way to round off the afternoon and recover their strength!
There is a large gift shop at Stump Cross, offering a variety of gifts and souvenirs to commemorate your visit to the caves.
