Yorkshire is of course very proud to have two World Heritage Sites; Fountains Abbey & Studley Royal in Ripon and Saltaire in Bradford. From humble beginnings the Abbey was established by devout Monks and the ruins that remain offer a window in to their way of life in a Medieval time. Explore the hidden passages and corners of the abbey; the largest monastic ruins in the country. The tranquil water garden boasts classical statues as you embrace the breath taking landscape. Saltaire is the second World Heritage Site. A purpose built industrial Village, now a bright cathedral type building, which is a shrine to retail therapy with boutiques, cafes, and shops selling crafts and outdoor equipment.
