Event Cancelled – due ro Covid-19 Sorry
The proposed final (and it seems like only !) run of 2020 will be to Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal a National Trust property, with a comfort stop at The Ferry Bridge Services.
It’s the time of year when holly berries dot the trees and frosts blanket the grounds. Layer up and come together to relax, unwind and embrace this festive time of year at Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal for a day out you’ll remember forever.
Christmas starts here…
It starts as you follow the trail of trees down the drive… Snap a selfie with the Christmas tree in the courtyard and visit the bird hide to see which winter birds you can see on your way down to the abbey.
Pick up an audio guide from admissions, immerse yourself in the life of the monks in Porter’s Lodge or join an abbey tour on weekends to learn all about the dramatic history of these ruins and the monks who searched for a simpler life.
The starting point is your house or a friends house, where you can meet up with a few friends, but no more that 6 in your group, this will be your bubble for the day.
From home plot your own route to The Ferrybridge services, Knottingley WF11 0AF aiming to be there around 10:30 am , its our late morning coffee and comfort stop for about 30 minutes.
To conform to current COVID-19 regulations no more than 6 to a table, and observe social distancing.
From there its up to the National Trust properties via Ripon on A and B roads, many of which run parallel to the A1M
