Mother Shipton's has been awarded with 'Best Family Attraction' (Yorkshire Dales) in the Little Vikings - York for Kids Awards.

Mother Shipton’s Cave is England’s Oldest Tourist Attraction, having first opened for paying visitors back in 1630. Despite its age, the ancient attraction is keeping up with the times.

To start off what hopes to be another promising year for the outdoor heritage site, the family-friendly attraction has just been presented with its first award of the year. Mother Shipton’s was nominated as ‘Best Family Attraction’ in the Little Vikings – York for Kids Awards in October 2021 by visitors and faced tough competition against The Forbidden Corner, Bolton Abbey, and the World of James Herriot. On the 27th January 2022, Little Vikings announced the winners for each category, selected by visitors casting votes for their favourites, and Mother Shipton’s won.

The winner will be put forward to the national Visit England Awards for Excellence 2022.
