Exhibition-Tour Nature-Rock formation

The Yorkshire Dales are predominantly made from limestone, a soft rock that erodes significantly during heavy rainfall. Over the years, this has carved out waterfalls, caverns, and deep tunnels that run through the landscape. White Scar Cave is one of the main rock features in the Yorkshire Dales. A karst cave formed in a Carboniferous limestone cavern. It is the longest show cave in Britain which means there's plenty to explore. A 1-mile tour will take you into the depths of the cave and will last around 80 minutes. If you’re still in the mood for more, there’s Ingleborough Cave right around the corner. This is also a limestone cave and contains a grotto and numerous impressive stalactite features. There's a fascinating tale of discovery to Ingleborough Cave. In 1837 Victorian explorers clambered 500 metres into the depths of the Earth with only candles to illuminate the cave’s interior to them. A true act of bravery that allows visitors to view the cave today! Image Credits: Nilfanion on Wikimedia Commons
