Christmas at Fountains Abbey & Studley Royal

Escape the hustle and bustle of the high street and spend quality time with friends and family this Christmas.

Wrap up warm and step out to discover the delights of the season with colourful days out, merry Christmas music and festive fare to enjoy...

Every weekend you can see the abbey lit with rainbow colours and hear live festive music and carols in the cellarium.

Get the whole family together and hit the trail seeking sparkling snowflakes on our trail, then call into the Elves' Christmas Workshop to get stuck into some crafty Christmas preparations! Don't forget to post your letter to Father Christmas in our twinkly post office and you can meet the man himself in his cosy grotto.

It wouldn't be Christmas without family traditions like Carols by Candlelight and our annual Boxing Day Pilgrimage, then there's winter wildlife walks, workshops, and festive lunches to enjoy too.
