About Fountains Abbey
Fountains Abbey is a truly breathtaking place to visit. Set in the naturally beautiful Skell valley, it's flanked by two vast expanses of lawn with awe-inspiring cliff faces to either side. The river Skell runs through the valley and under the Abbey, which is in itself a masterpiece of 12th-century building ingenuity.

About Studley Royal Water Garden
Studley Royal Water Garden was the breathtaking vision of John Aislabie and his son William. The eminently talented Aislabie wasn't a man to ask for professional advice but he does appear to have turned to the distinguished Palladian architect, Colen Campbell, on the design of the Banqueting House.
