Fountains Abbey & Studley Royal Water Garden

Kidderminster, Birmingham, Derby

The Experience

Our visit takes us to the resplendent Abbey and Water Gardens in Fountain, North Yorkshire. This site of cultural importance was granted UNESCO World Heritage status in 1986.

Your journey begins as you are welcomed aboard the Northern Belle Vintage train by your liveried steward.

Settle in and relax over a delicious brunch with a sparkling Bellini as the train makes its way to Harrogate, one of North Yorkshire's most elegant cities.

On arrival at the train station you board a coach for the short journey to Fountain. Here you are at leisure to explore the country’s largest monastic ruins and the awe inspiring Georgian gardens that surround it. Ornamental lakes, temples, cascading waterfalls and canals delight visitors from all around the world. Enjoy the many delights this National Trust property has to offer including the Temple of Piety and the “Surprise view” often called “Anne Boleyns Seat” which offers astonishing views of the Abbey and surrounding gardens.

At the end of your inspiring visit, rejoin the coach for the journey back to the station, where the train is waiting to take you home.

Enjoy a chilled glass of champagne as you settle back into your seat, followed by canapes, a sumptuous five-course dinner with fine wine to round off a perfect day.
