School for Witchcraft and Wizardry family activity

by | What's On

This Summer Holiday, you have been accepted at Mother Shipton’s School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. Visit the Wuthering Woodland, be sorted into a schoolhouse and meet your magic teachers. Attend all your lessons including Broomstick Training and Potions to become a qualified Witch or Wizard!

Actors and props will transform the attraction into a mystical and magical event for all the family.

Within historic woodland along the River Nidd is Mother Shipton’s Cave, the birthplace of Yorkshire’s famous prophetess. It is situated next to the Petrifying Well, England’s oldest visitor attraction.

The attraction tells the story of Mother Shipton and the water which turns objects to stone. The park has scenic picnic areas alongside the River Nidd, an adventure playground, gift shop and museum.


Saturday 20th July to Sunday 1st September, 10 am to 5.30pm (last admission 4.30pm).

Visitors can now book online!

Discounted tickets are available at the website
