Above the village is Giggleswick Scar, a series of limestone cliffs that were formed by the Craven Fault. The cliffs are surrounded by woodland in which visitors will see an abundance of wildlife. At the foot of the cliffs there are a number of caves including Schoolboy Cave and the larger Kinsey Cave, which has been the site of numerous prehistoric discoveries.

Giggleswick’s private boarding school is perhaps its most famous institution and includes the late Countdown presenter Richard Whiteley, Star Wars actor Anthony Daniels and motor sport journalist Nigel Roebuck amongst its alumni.

The school also claims that the Three Peaks walk – which includes the scaling of the mountains Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent – was created by three of its masters in 1887.

At the end of the scar stands Schoolboy Tower, a cairn created by pupils from the boarding school that was built up following a tradition of laying down a single rock to signify the end of the teaching each day.
