Mother Shipton’s is a beloved Knaresborough landmark and England’s oldest visitor attraction, open since 1630. A charming mile-long walk along the River Nidd features the cave where famous Yorkshire prophetess Mother Shipton was born. Curiosity has drawn millions of visitors over hundreds of years to see the cascading waters of the Petrifying Well turning items to stone – as if by magic!
