Welcome to Ingleborough Estate Nature Trail's Planet Trail
From 11th February to 6th March 2022, Ingleborough Estate Nature Trail will transform into a life sized representation of our solar system.
Gather the family for a cosmic adventure, combining education, exercise and of course family fun, on our beautiful woodland trail in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
The distances between the planets have been measured to scale, and the size of the planets are to scale in relation to one another, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the smaller ones!
Tickets for the trail can be purchased from the ticket office, or the ticket machine when the office isn’t open. Please bring appropriate change as the machine only takes coins (£2.50 per adult, £1.00 per child). Planet Trail booklets can be downloaded at the bottom of this page, or picked up on arrival.
You are about to travel millions of miles, through our solar system, towards the Sun!
“Space is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space,”
-Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
The countdown to launch has begun! 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, – LIFT OFF!
