The picturesque market-town of Settle is tucked in between the stunning Yorkshire Dales and the beautiful, remote Forest of Bowland. Settle is well known as a walker’s paradise, directly on the Dales Highway, the Ribble Way, and the Pennine Bridleway, and within easy reach of the Three Peaks, the Pennine Way, and the South-West Dales.

Just a little further afield are the Lake District, North Pennines, and  Nidderdale. The crags, caves, and bridleways also make the area a haven for climbers, cavers, and mountain-bikers, or for a more relaxed visit, you can simply soak up the scenery, from natural wonders such as Malham Cove and Gaping Gill, to the masterpiece of Victorian ambition and engineering that is the Ribblehead Viaduct.

With all these right on the doorstep, a lot of visitors to Victoria Hall like to make a day, or even a weekend, of their trip to the theatre. Settle is packed with fantastic places to stay and eat- for a handy guide of accommodation and eateries, go to
