Playtime at Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal

Head to the all new play area. It’s even bigger and better with a mini abbey to scramble over, tall towers to climb and a zip wire to whizz along.

A short walk from the visitor centre you will find a whole world of exploration in the new play area. There’s a huge new area bursting with challenges for all abilities and room for plenty of imagination too.

Made from sustainable timber and hand-spliced ropes, the new ‘playscape’ has been designed to blend in with the woods around so you can hop, skip and jump from one end to the other underneath the shady trees.

Little ones can discover using touch, sight and sound with chimes, a speak tube, skittles and a ball roll too. There’s things to wobble along, jump over and climb on...you'll find a wooden abbey, a woodland house, scramble nets and posts, swings, fireman's poles, a slide, a roundabout, a gigantic rope bridge and a huge zip wire for the most daring adventurers of all.
