Early Opening Announced for Mother Shipton’s

Mother Shipton’s Cave is excited to announce an early opening this weekend, starting Saturday, 27th January 2024. Traditionally, admission to the attraction commences on weekends in March, but weather permitting, Mother Shipton’s Cave aims to extend a warm welcome to visitors every weekend during the off-peak period from 27th January to 17th March, with an exception for February Half Term (10th – 18th Feb) when the attraction will be open all week.


During this early opening period, tickets purchased for visits will be substantially discounted, offering an excellent opportunity for guests to explore the enchanting legends of Mother Shipton’s Cave during the quiet season.


“We are incredibly excited to welcome visitors back to Mother Shipton’s Cave earlier than usual during this quiet season,” said Fiona Martin, Owner at Mother Shipton’s Cave. “It’s the perfect time to enjoy a peaceful walk through our tranquil, ancient woodland and experience the magic of Mother Shipton’s legacy.”


The family-friendly, historic site has also recently been honoured with the prestigious title of “Best Family Attraction (Yorkshire Dales)” in the 2024 Little Vikings Awards and will soon be featured on the popular BBC 1 television show Bargain Hunt. The episode, which includes a segment filmed at the site, will be aired later this year.
