Rievaulx Terrace & Temples

Christmas Event


Discover one of Ryedale’s true gems – the 18th century landscape of Rievaulx Terrace. Stroll through woods, then out onto the terrace with its stunning views down over the Cistercian ruin of Rievaulx Abbey. In spring the bank between the temples is awash with wild flowers, in summer the lawns are the perfect spot for picnics, while in autumn the beech woods are a mass of rich hues. Rievaulx Terrace’s close proximity to Nunnington Hall makes it an ideal double visit in one day.

Ice-cream, drinks and snacks are available. Don’t miss the shop selling National Trust ranges.

Access: There are some steps at the entrances of the temples.

Note: no access to Rievaulx Abbey from terrace.

Dogs welcome on leads.
