Will you get lost in her magical world of dinglehoppers and thingamabobs?


SCUTTLE along the ARRR-mazing adventure trail to discover FIN-tastic nautical scenes and countless MER-mazing photo opportunities - you’re guaranteed to have a WHALE of a time.


Dressing up is thoroughly encouraged, prizes and free tickets will be awarded to Mother Shipton’s favourites when you share your photos and videos with us on social media #mothershiptons.


There’s something for the whole family at England’s Oldest Tourist Attraction, including the birthplace of the Yorkshire Prophetess Mother Shipton, the incredible Petrifying Well, a large children’s Adventure Playground and a Museum & Gift Shop.


Scrumptious ice cream is available to purchase as well as hot dogs, pies, sweet and savoury treats, take-away coffee, tea, hot chocolate and refreshments from our lovely vintage-style kiosks in the middle of the woodland walk.
