Mother Shipton's Magical Woodland Adventure

Children’s dreams are magical things!

Enjoy a magical adventure in Knaresborough during the summer holidays

Explore a magical enchanted woodland filled with fairy houses, giant toadstools, and fairy-tale themed displays. Follow the fairy door trail, all you’ll need is faith, trust, and pixie dust!

Dressing up in your sparkiest fairy wings or pointiest elf hat is thoroughly encouraged. See what curiosities are hanging from the Petrifying Well and make a wish in the Wishing Well.

Have your own woodland tea party with artisanal coffee, cakes, sandwiches, and ice cream available to buy from the vintage style coffee kiosk. There are picnic benches where you can enjoy the scenic views of the River Nidd and the Ancient Royal Forest.

Dogs are welcome everywhere except the children’s adventure playground and must be always kept on a lead.
