Knaresborough Tips

A terrific place to visit is Mother Shipton’s Cave, where the petrifying Well turns things into stone, if you walk along the path called Beech Avenue the tall and old Beech trees line the walk from the Museum to the cave and the well. The price to get in covers all day free parking so why not leave your car there when you’ve finished and go and explore the town - Sharon

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 - Dean Jones
