... Knaresborough

Knaresborough is an ancient market town built on the slopes of the steep sided valley of the River Nidd, around three miles east of Harrogate and four miles west of the A1


Dominated by the ruined castle, the town has many attractions for visitors, including Mother Shipton's cave, the petrifying Dropping Well, the landscaped gardens of Conyngham Hall, the Courthouse Museum in the castle grounds and of course the Norman Castle itself. Also essential for any visitor is a stroll along 'Waterside', a lane that follows the north side of the river under the castle, and between an enourmous variety of buildings from all periods, including some which are built into the sandstone cliffs themselves

... Henshaws Arts & Crafts Centre


Our venue is one of a number of centres that Henshaws Society for the Blind operates across the North of England, enabling the people who use their services to live independent and fulfilling lives. The extensive grounds at Knaresborough, which are open to all, include the beautiful Sensory Gardens, with scented plants, sculputures, water features and wildlife.
