We stumbled across Saint Robert’s Cave when walking along Abbey Road. It was very interesting and well signposted. The steps down to the cave are steep and you meet a statue of Saint Robert on the way down. Beautiful secluded and peaceful location overlooking the Riven Nidd. The cave was an impressive structure and the information provided was informative and interesting. It is well worth a look at when in the area. Access is free.

This small cave is situated alongside the river and has an interesting history. There is an informative notice board which explains the significance of the site. It is about 40 minutes walk along Abbey Road and the entrance is unsigned - just a small gate on the right next to a small lay-bye. Free entrance.

This is a very beautiful and tranquil site to visit. We started from the viaduct and walked to the cave about 40 minutes but such a lovely walk plus after the cave you can walk back via the city cemetery to the city centre in 10 minutes

We’ve been to Knaresborough lots of times but never actually realised the cave was here. When we spotted it on the map we decided to take a stroll down Abbey Road to find it. There is some beautiful scenery to see on the way and a lovely cafe over the other side of the river.

The town map is very vague as to where the cave is and some of the locals had never heard of it. Don't expect any of the signs to tell you where it is. It's easy to miss as it lies right next to the river very close to a weir and an old mill, not on the crags as you might expect. The interpretation boards give you a good break down of the history and the new statue adds to the site's feel and significance. In a lovely spot and sadly prone to flooding. Well worth a look and the long walk was a pleasure given the scenery.
