  • Currently closed as it is National Trust - but when it reopens well worth a visit. Great views over Rievaulx Abbey & 2 follys that are well worth a visit.  more »
  • This is a nice easy walk with good views of the Abbey. If the little temples are open they are worth a look. Nearby Helmsley is worth a visit.  more »
  • One of the Trust's often overlooked gems. Stunning views down to the Abbey. The Ionic temple is stunning inside but only open for a brief period at midday I think. Have visited twice now and learn more on each visit thanks to the friendly and knowledgeable staff and volunteers. The temple has a museum / art gallery underneath also. At the end of the Terrace is the Tuscan temple (not open to the public but worth a peer through the windows for the amazing decor inside). If visiting nearby Nunnington Hall it's well worth dropping into the Terrace. Plus there's also the Abbey (English Heritage).
  • Very interesting place: the terrace is a feat of landscaping and the views are great. Our 10 year old enjoyed the nature games. A credit to the national trust but there's no more than 90 minutes to be spent here, at a push.
