Leighton Hall is a very informal stately home, where visitors are actively encouraged to sit on the antique furniture and even to play the Steinway grand piano! Explore the gardens, where you can discover hidden sculptures or find your way through the maze.
The Elizabethan Levens Hall also boasts fantastic gardens, with sculpted hedges and trees, a fountain garden and 30,000 different plants and flowers. Inside the house, there are paintings by Rubens, Chippendale furniture, and military memorabilia from the Napoleonic wars.

Children of all ages will enjoy exploring Ingleborough Cave, a large show cave under the hills of the Yorkshire Dales. Tour guides show you points of interest, and if you find yourself in a Kirkby Lonsdale cottage at Christmas time, young ones can take the chance to visit Santa Claus in a real grotto!
Carnforth Station, once a busy station on the Lancaster and Carlisle Railway, has been renovated and now houses a fascinating museum dedicated to the Golden Age of Steam, with plenty of hands-on activities for young visitors to enjoy. Alternatively, you can take a ride on the popular Settle to Carlisle railway, which takes you through some of the best scenery in the Dales and the Lake District and over the impressive Ribblehead Viaduct. Dent, in the heart of the Dales, is the closest station to Kirkby Lonsdale.
Lakes and Dales
Kirkby Lonsdale is itself a charming market town, sitting on the banks of the picturesque River Lune, which has attracted artists and poets for centuries (J.M.W. Turner was just one artist to paint the area.) Take the walking route over the medieval Devil's Bridge and up the 86 Radical Steps to St Mary's Church and you will find yourself at the viewpoint known locally as Ruskin's View. First painted by Turner, this area was then immortalised by local poet John Ruskin, who described it as the loveliest view in the world.
More challenging hiking routes can be found to the east in the Yorkshire Dales, and to the north-west, in the Lake District. The 628m Gragareth is the highest peak in Lancashire, and you can see as far as the coast from the summit, or explore one of its many caves as you make your ascent.
