Knaresborough

Riverside Knaresborough is a firm family favourite with popular attractions including the character Mother Shipton's Cave with natural phenomena, the Petrifying Well. Drama, history and legend all come together to great effect in this fun family attraction centred around the legendary witch prophetess Mother Shipton, born in the cave over 500 years ago.

A choice of family attractions feature in Knaresborough, from a tour of the ruined Medieval Knaresborough Castle with adjacent Courthouse Museum to scenic boat trips along the River Nidd. The town centre is brimming with family cafes, tearooms, Yorkshire inns and quirky craft and gift shops.

Knaresborough accommodation choice is huge, ranging from family friendly cottages and B&Bs to luxury coaching inn hotels, Victorian boutique guest houses and country house hotels with spa leisure facilities and conference/ function rooms.
