Mad Hatter's Tea Party May Half Term


Follow us down the rabbit hole for a magical adventure at Mother Shipton's! You'll be grinning like a Cheshire Cat when you explore the Wonderland of themed displays and fantastical photo opportunities.
Curiouser and curiouser! See what curiosities are hanging from the Petrifying Well, make a wish in the Wishing Well, and step inside the cave where Mother Shipton was born.
We're all MAD here! Go wild in our Adventure Playground, or have your own Mad Hatter's Tea Party with artisanal coffee, cakes, sandwiches and ice cream served from our vintage style coffee van. There are plenty of picnic benches with scenic views of the River Nidd and Ancient Royal Forest.
Don't be late for this very important date! Tickets are limited and booking is essential.
Dogs are welcome everywhere except the children's adventure playground and must be kept on a lead at all times.
