Pen-y-ghent Cafe

pen-y-ghent cafe
The Pen-y-ghent Cafe has been the starting point of the the Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk for many people over the years. The café operates a clock-in/out system to time the challenge. A clock card machine records the start and end time of walkers. Those completing within a 12 hour period are invited to join the café’s ‘Three Peaks of Yorkshire Club’.

Many people prefer to start the circular walk at various points to avoid the early morning crowds in Horton-in-Ribblesdale & on the first ascent and instead stop at the café for lunch or a much needed break.
