Mother Shipton's Cave

About

A gorgeous Winter Woodland Walk with lots of festive delights and twinkling lights to see along the way! The magic of Christmas is here; Santa will be visiting and giving children a special wave from his safe and cozy grotto, and his festive friends are taking up residence in our very own Christmas Village.
Visitors cannot go inside Santa's grotto but they can take a photo inside Santa's sleigh and sit upon the Christmas throne. Don't forget to bring your letters for Santa to post in our Post Box!
Stop by the incredible Petrifying Well and see the Cave where the famous prophetess Mother Shipton was born. Make a Christmas wish in the Wishing Well and explore the historic outdoor attraction.
Warm up with refreshments and drinks from our coffee kiosk. Our toilets are open and we have picnic benches throughout the attraction. Access to the adventure playground is subject to weather conditions. Our museum and gift shop is currently closed.
Dogs are welcome everywhere except the adventure playground and must be kept on a lead.
There are three sets of steps in the attraction which are not wheelchair accessible and pushchairs must be parked under the shelter before these steps - we recommend bringing a sling.

Please respect the rule of six, social distancing and local tier restrictions. Check the latest advice for local tier restrictions here.
Mother Shipton's is in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, which is currently in Tier 2. If you are in a tier 3 area, we would advise you to follow the government guidance regarding travel to tier 1 and 2 areas. It is not our responsibility as the event organiser and venue to police where people are travelling from and it is up to you, the booker to act responsibly.
