Although it was once a key centre for lead mining it has retained a bucolic charm and boasts a medieval bridge spanning the river and a cobbled market square.
Grassington Moor possesses fascinating reminders of the lead mining industry while Lea Green has prehistoric and medieval field systems as well as other features.

The village is also home to the Upper Wharfedale Folk Museum.
