Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal

The 800-year-old Cistercian Fountains Abbey is Britain's largest ruin and one of Yorkshire's most visited attractions. It includes the grand Elizabethan mansion, Fountains Hall, and 18th-century Studley Royal Water Garden.

The National Trust owns Fountains Abbey and the pointed arches and roofless halls provide a romantic backdrop to the landscaped garden. For a magnificent view of the Abbey, walk to Anne Boleyn's Seat. Walk in the other direction to Fountains Hall or follow the water course past a rotunda folly, the Temple of Piety and the Gothic Octagon Tower to the Studley Royal Tearoom, for a delicious cream tea.
