Mother Shiptons Cave

    Mother Shipton was a local witch in the 1500s who was born in a cave just outside Harrogate and prophesied many notable events such as the Great Fire of London, Spanish Armada and even the end of the world…

    She sounds like a right laugh. In the cave, visitors can experience the mystical wonder of the Petrifying Well which turns items to stone – particularly effective on frown lines and crow’s feet. And men’s hearts!
