    The Petrifying Well at Mother Shipton's Cave

    An eerie but intriguing spot

    One of the more outlandish family attractions in the Harrogate region is just outside Knaresborough, 4 miles east of Harrogate. The Petrifying Well, with its seemingly magical power to turn toys and other objects to stone, has to be seen to be believed. 

    Children will be amazed to discover that anything immersed in the mineral-rich waters of the Petrifying Well at Mother Shipton's Cave acquires a rocky coating. That includes teddy bears, and you can buy petrified teddies in the gift shop.

    Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway

    For the love of locomotives

    There’s no better way for the family to see the picturesque scenery of the Dales than from a historic steam train. Take a ride from Bolton Abbey – a 30-minute drive from Harrogate – to catch a train drawn by one of the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway's vintage locomotives. 

    From the 19th-century station at Bolton Abbey, steam trains take just 15 minutes to choo-choo to Embsay – not an epic journey, but a fun one. At Bolton Abbey, children can also ride the Hambleton Valley Miniature Railway.
