Fountains Abbey Photographs - Images from Fountains Priory & Studley Royal Water Gardens

09th February 2018
Fountains Abbey is one of the largest and best preserved ruined Cistercian monasteries in England. A popular tourist destination now owned by the National Trust, the Abbey and the World Heritage Sit of Studley Royal Water Gardens can provide a full day of photographic opportunities and are also a fantastic way to spend a day whilst visiting the nearby Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Within the ruins of the Abbey is the fabulous vaulted cellarium which was originally used for food storage. The beautiful archways featuring in many photographs and are often used for films.

There is a great circular walk which takes you down past the abbey ruins and up and through the picture perfect water gardens. On the route are many follies and water features, packed with history all set within the formally landscaped gardens.

I've included a group of images below from the day featuring some of the fantastic viewpoints found around the National Trust Fountains Abbey Estate:
