Near the head of Upper Swaledale, below Kisdon Hill, Muker is the perfect place from which to explore the head of the valley. There is a great choice of footpaths across the flower-rich meadows and riverside to Keld, over Kisdon to join the Pennine Way to Thwaite or Keld, or along the valley past Ivelet Bridge for Gunnerside, and on to Grinton and Reeth.

The village boasts a fine little Literary Institute - now the village hall, an inn and the Swaledale Woollens (website opens in new window) shop. The latter is a remarkable local venture that has helped save the Swaledale Woollen industry by marketing locally made clothing from the uniquely hard wearing wool of this distinctive of Dales sheep breed.
