A famous garden at Studley, North Yorkshire

Statue at Studley Royal Water Garden, North Yorkshire

This wonderful 18th-century water garden justly deserves its status as a World Heritage Site.

Studley is the least-altered Georgian landscape garden in England. There’s plenty to discover as you walk amongst its elegant ornamental lakes, avenues, temples, cascades and canals.
 
The landscape incorporates the spectacular ruins of 12th-century Fountains Abbey, which rises up with its huge tower virtually intact. St Mary’s Church, William Burgess’s Gothic Revival masterpiece, provides another dramatic focal point from the garden.
