We called here as we had visited the ruevaulx abbey... and was well worth it just to see the views from the terrace. Nice walk in a little wood before getting to the terrace. The staff kind and friendly sorted the children out with paper...More
If you visit rievieux abbey, it’s worth also visiting the terrace above.. although separate trusts being one national trust And the other English heritage ??
Lovely woodland walk and the children enjoyed the brass rubbings along the way!
Excellent views of the abbey below
A stunning autumnal walk in the sunshine views were amazing. We were lucky with the weather I would imagine in summer it would be busy but we only shared it with a couple of people. A really lovely place very calming.
We have today been to Rievaulx Terrace and Temples, a National trust property that over looks the ruins of the abbey. It costs about £6 per person (or free if you have Trust membership) and for that you have entry to the terrace where you...More
We visited on 31/10, which was a lovely sunny day. First time visitors using National Trust membership. Plenty of parking and well signposted. Small shop/visitor centre, pleasant staff, clean toilet facilities, dog friendly- water available and poop bags.
There are no handouts or leaflets but...More
We visited the abbey first and this was a National Trust site above it with good walks through woods and along terraces.
There are also two small temples to visit.
Recommended particularly following a visit to the abbey.
We visited Rievaulx Terrace on a damp morning in early October. Having visited the Abbey in February, we knew how stunning that was. After reading the National Trust app we expected some nice views in the distance and that was pretty much it.

We stopped here to walk along this 1758? Landscaped terrace. It was amazing to think how and what was used at the time to create this plateau. It's an interesting walk from end to end between two temples with glimpses of the ruined abbey below....More
Had very much wanted to take the wonder view from the Terrace over the fine ENGLISH HERITAGE Rievaulx Abbey. Much excitement in the back of the car from our friends from Surrey (where?)!
Arrived 40 minutes before closing as the light was beginning to fade,...More
Hi - have a look on web for 2018 prices, it depends on your ages etc. If you search for Rievaulx Terrace and National Trust. As you managed to ask the question on here, it would have been quicker to use a web browser!
I posted about our upcoming trip several months ago and got some good ideas. Now I would like some feedback on where we plan to do our day trips. We are a party of four young seniors and have travelled successfully together in the past. We are flying into Leeds and staying there because we can stay for free (Marriott points). The day we arrive we will stay in the city, look around and try to stay awake. The next day we will take the train to York and explore there. On the third day we...More
