Our Pixie Village event has been postponed for now to protect the safety of our staff, visitors, and community in Knaresborough.

Once it is safe for us to reopen under government guidelines, this event will continue. The Pixie Village event will not include any confined spaces and our actors will not be interacting for this event which will reduce large gatherings of crowds and physical contact. Visitors will be provided with a trail sheet to explore the natural woodland at their own pace.
Mother Shipton’s is an outdoor attraction with continual movement of people through the mile-long park, with plenty of outdoor seating and space for visitors to enjoy the ancient woodland. Visitors will have room to continue practising social distancing whilst exploring the attraction. We will be conducting regular cleaning throughout the park, museum, and ticket booths.
We will encourage card transactions in the ticket booths and the museum, especially contactless card transactions to reduce contact. The museum and gift shop will have a maximum capacity of visitors inside at any time, and queues with a 2-metre distance between patrons will be utilised.
Have you ever dreamt of stepping into an utterly enchanted realm? Deep in the captivating woodland, filled with fairy rings and secret doorways, pixies are waiting to play!
Tread carefully through the land of the woodland people and keep your eyes peeled as you follow the trail to see their tiny houses. Play in the wilderness like real pixie folk, dance like a fluttering fairy and discover the secrets of forest folklore.
There’s something for everyone with the cave, petrifying well, gift shop, museum and adventure playground. Dogs are welcome in the park for a picturesque mile-long walk along the River Nidd.
Dates, times and prices will be updated soon.
