National Park Visitor Centre – Malham

The National Park Visitor Centre staff can give you all the information you need to explore some of the most dramatic scenery in the National Park; the towering cliff of Malham Cove, the impressive Gordale Scar and the delightful waterfall at Janet's Foss. You can also find out about watching the Peregrine Falcons that regularly nest at the Cove, or exploring around Malham Tarn.

Car park, toilet facilities, including a Radar Toilet, and a picnic area are available at the National Park Visitor Centre. There is an electric car charger point in the car park.

The car park is a designated Dark Sky Discovery site, so why not visit after dark to experience the dark skies overhead.

You can travel to Malham by bus from Skipton which has good rail connections.

The Centre is a great starting point for anyone wanting to make the most of this beautiful area. There are interesting displays about the area, guide books and leaflets and of course, friendly staff to help you enjoy the National Park in just the way you want.

You can ask us about:

  • Planning your visit
  • Buying maps, books, souvenirs and clothing
  • Leaflets and brochures
  • Booking accommodation
  • How to get to and around the area by public transport

When we are closed the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority online shop is available.

You can find out about walks and things to do in Malham and the surrounding area here.

Please note: opening hours are subject to change – please call to confirm before setting out.
