Pateley Bridge Things to Do

  • Stump Cross Caverns

    Just a short distance out of the village is a show cave at Stump Cross Caverns. 350 million years ago this range of stalactites, stalagmites and unusual rock formations were formed in a warm , shallow sea.It was discovered by lead miners in 1860 and opened some years later to the public. Further exploration has resulted on 4 miles in length of...

  • Nidderdale Museum

    The local dale museum just like the others does a nice job of showing you life in Nidderdale throughout history. A village shop belongs to the more popular themes, as does a school room and lots of Victoriana. The old ladies' hairdresser is amazing and makes you appreciate modern day styling.

  • Stump Cross Cavern

    The cavern was discovered in 1858 by a group of lead miners working in one of the many mines up on the moors and looking for more lead. The place then became famous in 1963 when a man called Geoff Workman set a world record for staying underground (105 days) and is today an open cavern system with a visitors centre, telling you about all the 90 000...

Pateley Bridge Restaurants

  • On the riverbank

    The cafe is housed in what used to be the village pumping station and stands on the banks of the River Nidd.There is both indoor and outdoor seating and the outdoor seating is under a canopy above the river and a walkway below.It has a traditional feel and is open from 10.00 - 17.00 everyday but Monday. Food good but service rather slow and we had...

  • Fish & chips

    As Yorkshire is one of the great places for fish & chips, it doesn't matter that Pateley is not by the sea. Station fisheries is as good as any chippie and if the weather allows you to sit outside, you get a great feeling of "a day out in the Dales".

Pateley Bridge Transportation

  • Bus to Pateley Bridge

    There has been no train to the village for many years but there is a regular bus service to Harrogate which operates seven days per week. This is service 24.On summer Sundays and Bank holidays it is possible to get a bus from York (812), Leeds (820) and another Harrogate service via Brimham Rocks (825).The linked website has full details.

  • Bus or car

    If you don't have your own car, it can be awkward to get here but don't think it is impossible. Pateley Bridge is on the way to many other places in the Dales and so, buses go here from for instance Harrogate which is easy to get to.

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

Pateley Bridge Shopping

  • Fun Fun Fun

    The sweet shop is crammed full of sweets from my childhood! There must be hundreds of jars on the shelves with some of my favs - Kola Cubes, Sherbet Lemons, bon bons! The retro sweets are weighed from the jar into real Avery scales by the quarter. It brought back so many memories of being a child spending my pocket money in our local sweet shop.The...

  • Oldest Sweet Shop in England - Appalling

    There is nothing makes this visit special. Appalled, disappointed, hurt and upset is how I was left feeling after a visit to the Oldest Sweet Shop in England…..I visited the shop with my 3 well behaved children of 8yrs, 4yrs & 3yrs all very eager to find a special treat from the special sweet shop BUT after about 60 seconds that excitement came to...

  • Antique sweets?

    The oldest sweet shop in England is a very good reason for visiting Pateley Bridge. A wonderful little shop full of jars and boxes of sweets old and new and many old childhood favourites that are hard to find. There is an antique shop feel to the shop and its cash only in the shop too (although you can buy on line with a payment card). If you are...


Pateley Bridge Off The Beaten Path

  • How Stean Gorge & Tom Taylor's Cave

    We had an afternoon without any special plans so we decided to head to Tom Taylor's Cave in Nidderdale close to Pateley Bridge. How Stean Gorge is amazing limestone gorge which is more than ten metres deep and its erosion, which has created a surface gorge in a limestone landscape, means it has been made a Site Of Scientific Interest.This is...

  • Brimham Rocks

    The name may put you off a bit- but this place is certainly not as boring as it sounds! Brimham Rocks is an enormous, wooded park with rowan, ash and pine trees, set on undulating terrain near Pateley Bridge on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. But the most interesting thing about the place is the fact that it is scattered with enormous boulders...
