Fountains Abbey

Stroll the calming gardens of Fountains Abbey

    Description

    For centuries, people have been drawn to this inspiring place. The magnificent abbey was founded by devout monks seeking a simpler life. The atmospheric ruins that are left are a doorway into a way of life which shaped the medieval world.
    Explore a water garden of mirror-like ponds, statues and follies, incorporating the romantic ruins into the design.
    The riverside is accompanied with green lawns, a perfect spot for a picnic. Paths lead to the deer park, home to Red, Fallow and Sika deer and ancient trees; limes, oaks, and sweet chestnuts.
