Bolton Abbey


Planning on visiting Yorkshire?
Ideally located in the Yorkshire Dales, you cannot miss out on visiting this spectacular Abbey.
Rich in history and mysterious legends, the ruins of the Priory are incredible.
Through the hole in the wall, your adventure begins.
Belonging to the Devonshire family since 1755, it is an inspiration to all.
The landscape is out of this world and has been expressed as such by artists from around the world.
The poet Wordsworth, Turner, Ruskin and Royle, all fell for this location once upon a time.
The 30 000 acres of countryside and 80 miles of footpaths are frequently explored by worldwide visitors.
To this day, it is still the Yorkshire seat of the 12th Duke of Devonshire.
Do keep an eye out, as there are many events happening regularly. From children's activities to fishing, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
If you are looking for somewhere to stay, there are some exclusive hotels and holiday cottages close by.
Walking along the riverside can be so romantic and it is a brilliant spot for a picnic.
There are great restaurants, tea rooms and shops nearby too.


All of the attractions featured within this book are all special and have been chosen because of their visitor experience and value for money, many other things were taken into consideration however but visitor experience is the biggest. Bolton Abbey has visitor experience oozing from every acre and no matter which time of the year you visit, there is always something spectacular to be seen. But the Abbey isn't necessarily the star of the show. What makes this attraction so memorable is the whole village itself! This site is a walkers paradise with one day not being enough to see everything. Food also has a big part to play at Bolton Abbey, with everything from a old traditional English tearoom to a fine dining restaurant, despite a picnic being ideal here, I would suggest on thisoccasion leaving them at home, or if you love food, do both!
