FOUNTAINS ABBEY & STUDLEY ROYAL WATER GARDEN.  Cistercian abbey, elegant Georgian water garden and medieval deer park. For centuries people have been drawn to this inspiring place.  From humble beginnings the magnificent abbey was established by devout monks seeking a simpler existence.

When the socially ambitious John Aislabie inherited Studley Royal, he set about creating an elegant water garden of mirror-like ponds, statues and follies, incorporating the romantic ruins into his design.
