Marvellous viaduct built by the Victorians. They even manufactured the bricks on site. It's easy to walk to from a car park and if you plan your visit you can watch the Settle to Carlisle steam train go over it.

Parking available on road side and footpath down to the viaduct if you want to take a closer look or you can simply sit and admire the scenery and wildlife and the trains travelling over the viaduct.

A truly wonderful structure set in the wild moors. The atmosphere spoilt by white minibuses parked under the arches and someone camping under another one. Selfish behaviour that spoils the enjoyment of the public and disrespectful to the workers that lost there lives during its...More

Absolutely stunning. Even if you do not walk to it you must at least stop and admire it and of course take a picture or two!

Loved visiting Ribblehead Viaduct. Waled upnto Whernside too which was an enjoyable steady climb. Views were amazing!

A good walk to get up close to the viaduct and there are several paths to take to get a variety of views. It’s a shame they didn’t run a steam train the day we visited but we did see a train cross the viaduct...More

We walked past the viaduct when on the 3 peaks challenge. Very picturesque and lots of opportunities to take photos and walk along the path that runs alongside. Only toilet facilities are in the pub.

This is a marvel and to be up close was fantastic. I would highly recommend a visit as pictures don't do this engineering marvel justice.

Originally there were two tracks over the viaduct, but during repair and reconstruction this has been reduced to a single track, reverting to double at each end of the structure. Ruth.
