One of Yorkshire's finest 18th-century landscape gardens, containing two temples
Discover one of Ryedale's true gems - the 18th-century landscape of Rievaulx Terrace. Stroll through woods, then out on to 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.
Calling all art lovers
Terrace Treasures Exhibition - runs until 1st November
We are hosting an exhibition of sculptures by local artists at Rievaulx Terrace. Spread across our woodland walk and the grassy terrace, the sculptures provide a superb addition to the visit, bringing man made beauty to the natural beauty of the site. All artworks are for sale with the proceeds going to benefit local artists and the work of the National Trust. With a wide range of styles and materials, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
