Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden
In anticipation of next week’s reopening of the first of its gardens and parklands in England and Northern Ireland on 3rd June, we wanted to remind people of some of the fabulous National Trust properties.
The abbey ruins at Fountains are the largest monastic ruins in the country and the Studley Royal Water Garden are a landscape masterpiece designed by John and William Aislabie in the 18th century and now a World Heritage Site.
My parents visited Fountains Abbey a few years’ back and said that it was one of the best visits they have had (my dad isn’t a great one for site-seeing!)
Please note that Fountains Abbey and the Water Gardens are both currently closed. We will try to update this post when more details of the National Trust’s re-opening programme are made known.
