Fountains Abbey - Autumn, Winter & Christmas

Sunday, 3rd November 2019

There's a real buzz in the air as everyone embraces the cooler weather and comes out with friends and family. Christmas kicks off on weekends from 23rd November - 22nd December with the Abbey lit up in rainbow colours and a choir or band playing in the Abbey cellarium.

Now in place is the new play tower aimed at under 5's; great fun for the little ones midweek.

 

Due to winter being upon us the winter hours are now in place; which means we are closed Fridays. Apart from Friday 27th December when you can come and work off the Christmas dinner!
