North Yorkshire Reports

Knaresborough, North Yorkshire

Review of Knaresborough by Dean Jones on June 7th, 2006
Knaresborough has arguable the most photographed railway viaduct in the country. It's a pictureresque village/small town set on the top of a hill just outside Harrogate. A visit to Harrogate should definitely culminate in a trip to Knaresborough. Select a nice sunny day and you are guaranteed a very pleasant day out. The river Nidd runs through the village and set up on the hill side is the remains of a castle. The view from here is stunning. There are a number of activities to enjoy in Knaresborough including afternoon tea, boating on the river and a trip to Mother Shipton's Cave.

It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known. - Charles Dickens
