Dent lies in its own valley of Dentdale and is served by only one minor road. Within the centre itself are narrow cobbled streets lined with old terraced cottages. There are two public houses in the centre, the Sun Inn and the George & Dragon.

St Andrew's Church dates in part from the fifteenth century, although the majority of it was restored in 1889. In the main street there is a granite drinking fountain inscribed with the name Adam Sedgwick, a man born in Dent, who was a Professor of Geology at Cambridge for over 50 years. He was one of the founders of the science of geology and died at the age of ninety-eight.
