The beach is the number one thing to do here in Knaresborough during the summer, with activities every day to keep children (and parents) entertained and happy. We are really grateful to our generous sponsors Fleetcor, Harrogate Spring Water, Knaresborough Chamber, NM Group and St Robert’s Homes for supporting Henshaws to bring the beach back once again.”
