Win a Family Ticket to Mother Shipton's Cave!

We all know that Yorkshire is the best place in the world. This great county is filled with a never ending list of awesome places to visit, so sometimes it can be a little tricky to know where to start - so allow me to share a little inspiration (as well as some awesome free tickets!) to help you on your way!

 I've not made it there so far this year, but last year we had a lovely family day out at Mother Shipton's Cave in Knaresborough. 
 
Don't know Mother Shipton? Here she is....
 
 
Mother Shipton was born in this cave on the banks of the River Nidd in 1488 and grew to become the nation's most famous prophetess, predicting the invention of iron ships, the Great Fire of London and the defeat of the Spanish Armada.

As well as seeing the cave where Mother Shipton was born and spent much of her time growing up, a ticket to Mother Shipton's Cave will also give you access to some beautiful parkland complete with picnic areas, a playground, wishing well and a small museum.

We were all particularly fascinated by the petrifying well - the high mineral content of the water will turn objects to stone and petrified teddy bears are one of the biggest sellers in the gift shop!

If you fancy a visit  to England's oldest tourist attraction (open since 1630!), I've got a family ticket up for grabs - that'll get either two adults and two children or one adult and three children into the park and includes all day parking! For your chance to win, just leave me a comment with your email address and your favourite place to visit in the UK, and tweet something along the lines of 'I hope I win tickets to @mothershiptons in the @tea_adventures giveaway' - good luck! Entry closes at 10am on Monday 24th August.
