RIEVAULX TERRACE

RIEVAULX TERRACE

Rievaulx Terrace is an area of woodland and grassland created by the Duncombe family in the 18th century for entertaining. Here, they built a Tuscan Temple and an Ionic Temple for fine dining. There are spectacular views of Rievaulx Abbey and the valley below.

Tip - ideal for picnics. There is also a good circular walk which takes in Helmsley Castle, Rievaulx Abbey and Rievaulx Terrace.
