If peace and tranquility is what you seek from a family day out in Yorkshire, then Rievaulx Abbey is the perfect choice. Set in a remote valley in the North York Moors National Park, Riexaulx is one of the most complete, and atmospheric, of England’s abbey ruins. It’s no wonder it’s one of the most popular visitor attractions in the North.

Learn about the monks in medieval times – how they devoted their lives to spiritual matters and at the same time established a thriving business to become one of the wealthiest monasteries in Britain.

Then enjoy some delicious Yorkshire fare in the cafe before taking a stroll around the beautiful grounds.

Pay and display parking, refundable to EH members and paying visitors upon admission.
