    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Knaresborough is a lovely town on the banks of the river Nidd and with a huge bridge across it. You can fall for the tourist trap of 'Mother Shipton's petrifiying well' but you can also just wander around a lovely small town where people greet you in the streets, look at the castle ruins (the castle is where Thomas a Beckett's murderers fled to after the deed in Canterbury) and have a relaxing day out, perhaps renting a boat on the river. Bus or train from York station towards Harrogate.
