Set in the North York Moors National Park near Helmsley, Rievaulx is one of the most complete of England’s abbey ruins.

Once the largest and most important monastery in England, Rievaulx
Abbey now lies in ruins in a beautiful and tranquil, valley. Rievaulx
(pronounced “Ree-vohl”) was the first Cistercian abbey in northern
England and its ruins are among the most atmospheric in the region. The
monks thought so, too: one Rievaulx abbot described his surroundings as
“everywhere peace, everywhere serenity.”
