Easter at Rievaulx

A reward is posted for anyone who can find Sir Thomas' horses

A reward is posted for anyone who can find Sir Thomas' horses

 Sir Thomas Robinson's horses have escaped and he can't go home in his carriage. Hunt high and low through our wild woodland and tranquil terrace to find the horses. There will be a shiny Cadbury Chocolate Egg for anyone who can find them all. The hunt is on Friday 3rd - Monday 6th and Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th April. 


Animals for Easter

The cuteness of Donkey's is massively underrated

 The Terrace is home to a wide variety of wild animals, but this 11th and 12th April we will be hosting a whole slew of cute and cuddly farm animals. With Chickens, Donkeys and Lambs to meet and a face painter and craft activities to enjoy, it will be the perfect tonic before the school holidays finish.


Family trails, big picnics, outdoor theatre and bug hunts are just some of the events that take place at Rievaulx Terrace throughout the year. Visit our Events page to find out more...


Den building is one of the 50 things

Whether you're on a leisurely picnic or stretching your legs on the terrace, there are lots of activities to enjoy. We have lots of the 50 things to do before you're 11 ¾, so pick up your adventure scrapbook and nature spotter sheets.
