"Rievaulx Abbey" England Things to Do Tip by smoox
England Things to Do: 566 reviews and 886 photos
These are the remains of what once was Englands largest Abbey. It was dissolved in 1538, and you can take this expression literally - they not only kicked the monks out but also took the roofs down to get hold of the lead.
The grounds are very well kept and certainly an attraction. If you want to see more of those abbey ruins: not far away is Fountains Abbey, another "must".
You can take a guided audio tour.
Directions: North of the town of York, Yorkshire
