Fountains by Floodlight is a feast for all your senses...

Watch as the night sky falls over the abbey and ruins start to glow with light.

Grab a torch and chase your shadows as you experience the abbey like never before. Between 7pm-8pm join us in the cellarium as the voices of choirs ring through the ruin as darkness falls.

Stop by Mill Yard across from the abbey and fill those rumbling tummies with some delicious local treats. You'll be able to choose from Pie and Tap, Toast of Harrogate and Posh Dogs.

Enjoy a guided tour of the abbey at 6pm.
