Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, many attractions are closed and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events. While we will try to update the information on this site as much as possible, we cannot guarantee to have all the information we would like. Therefore we urge you to check the latest information on the attraction or event’s website or Facebook pages, and to contact them before travelling to avoid disappointment.

Fountains Mill (2021)

The mill was built by the Cistercians in the 12th-century to grind grain for the monastery. Having survived the closure of the Abbey, it continued to mill grain right up to 1927. Today you'll find an interactive exhibition and see objects discovered when the mill was restored in 2001.
