Enchanted Stories - May Half Term at Mother Shipton's

Wander into a world of Enchanted stories at Mother Shipton’s this May Half Term!

See giant story books and a Wonderland of fairy-tale themed displays with fantastical photo opportunities throughout the ancient woodland. Watch out for the pesky dragon, The Wicked Witch of the West and the Big Bad Wolf, peek into miniature fairy houses, and sit on the Wishing Chair throne. Dressing up as your favourite storybook character is thoroughly encouraged, prizes will be awarded to Mother Shipton’s favourites when you share them on Instagram #mothershiptons.

You’ll be OVER THE RAINBOW to discover how Mother Shipton’s is filled with mystical delights for all ages: see what curiosities are hanging from the Petrifying Well, make a wish in the Wishing Well, and step inside the cave where Mother Shipton was born. This May Half Term you can gaze at a brand new exhibition of fantastical creatures in the museum alongside petrified celebrity items, and browse the unique attraction gift shop.

Go wild in the Adventure Playground, or have your own Mad Hatter’s Tea Party with artisanal coffee, cakes, sandwiches and ice cream available to purchase from our vintage style coffee kiosk. There are plenty of picnic benches with scenic views of the River Nidd and Ancient Royal Forest.

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