There are acres of space where little legs can explore and imaginations run riot here at Fountains Abbey & Studley Royal. Find out more about what to expect if you’re planning a visit with babies and children.

Planning your family visit

Fountains Abbey is open 7 days a week and there’s no need to book in advance – just come along and spend a full day exploring, running and playing.

  • There are accessible toilets and a dedicated baby change at the visitor centre, by Fountains Hall and at the Studley end of the estate.
  • There are accessible concrete paths on a circular walk around the estate. Paths inside the abbey ruins and deer park vary from gravel to grass and hard standing.
  • Children under five are welcome to bring balance bikes to help them get around. Foot-propelled scooters, larger bikes and e-scooters are only allowed on the long drive through the deer park.
  • There is a ball games area next to playground at the visitor centre, ball games are not permitted beyond this point.
  • We are aware the estate is very large and little legs can get tired on their adventures. Complimentary visitor transport operates from each entrance (visitor centre, West Gate and Studley). Just ask a member of the team at the ticket office to call it for you and we’ll be happy to run down and collect you.
Exploring safely

The abbey ruin is nearly 900 years old and while it looks tempting to climb on, it’s much safer to have fun discovering all the secret doorways and staircases instead. The river Skell runs through the site and it is a great place for spotting wildlife. Please do keep those wellies out of the water though as it is deep and fast running in places.
