Autumn drive through

Drive into a magical scene of Fountains at night, see the glowing abbey and finish with a warming drink. It's just for cars and minibuses so it's great for people who might be less steady on their feet.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event

It's a one-way route through the estate and you're welcome to drive round again if you wish. You'll be in your car throughout the event but there are accessible toilets next to Fountains Hall and you'll be able to purchase a hot drink from the stall on your way out too. Free entry
