We are delighted to have won the Tourism Award in the Harrogate Advertiser Excellence in Business Awards for 2020!
This has been the strangest year for everyone, and we have faced many challenges here at Mother Shipton’s with two storms, a landslide, a global pandemic and a national lockdown that saw this historic attraction closed to visitors for almost three months.
But we knew Mother Shipton would not let us down on our 390th anniversary. The Petrifying Well first opened for visitors in the year 1630, and we have made through this most unusual year with an award to show for it.
We couldn’t have made it through these difficult times without the support from our devoted visitors and community. With thanks to our visitors and staff, we have overcome all of these challenges, welcomed visitors back to the attraction and had a cracking Summer.
We are proud to support Knaresborough and Harrogate, promote the area as a destination to visit, and a place to stay. We are so proud to still be providing a great day out after all these years, and look forward to many more! You can visit the Award-Winning Mother Shipton’s Cave for a spooktacular time at our Halloween Haunted Village from the 24th October – 1st November 2020.
