The Three Peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside are among the best-known hills in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Every year thousands come to reach the top of at least one or to conquer all three in one go.
With spectacular scenery and fantastic walking opportunities, this is a great place to spend a few days, staying in the area and soaking up the scenery.
