Lovely place to visit. If you have the imagination, it is such a romantic place overlooking the gorge. I say put your flat shoes on, but one of the locals who lives opposite the Marigold Café, walks up and down the gorge to the castle, every day, in 4" heels!

Being a Yorkshire lad I've visited Knaresborough Castle many times as a young lad but now living 75 miles away for the past 34yrs it's so nice to go back too. The Castle (what's left of it ) has so much history to tell and a guided tour is available which is half a hour long. The castle stands overlooking the river Nidd and the views are just stunning from the Castle. It's such a popular view it can be found on most postcards and even jigsaws. The grounds are well kept and whilst we were there a lady had four ravens and was telling everyone all about them. It''s a MUST for any trip to Yorkshire as the town it's self is steeped in history and the market square boasts the oldest chemist in England. Mother Shiptons cave is also in Knaresborough and worth visiting, it's fascinating seeing the petrifying well and teddy bears hung up under the dripping water turned into stone. If you've never visited Knaresborough before DO NOT MISS IT - you'll be amazed and get some lovely photo's.

We absolutely loved our day in Knaresborough, we walked all over town, took countless photos, rented a rowboat, and were just thrilled to be there! What a lovely holiday we had, and Knaresborough was a huge part of that.
