Explore glowing ruins and shadowed archways with an after-dark adventure...
Bring all the family and discover the abbey lit up after dark. Join a guided tour to find out more about the rich history of this estate, or listen to a live choral performance 7-8pm. Tuck into tasty food in the Mill Yard and enjoy the resounding Gregorian chant in Huby's tower.
You'll need to pre-book a ticket for Fountains by Floodlight. Free to National Trust members but remember to still book your tickets. Spaces are limited so we recommend booking as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
This year entry for this event will be staggered and each ticket will have an allocated time slot for your arrival. Please note there is no access to the estate before your ticketed time slot and we recommend allowing 15 minutes to find a parking space and make your way through admissions.
Fountains by Floodlight will be running on the following dates: Saturday 7 October, Saturday 14 October, Saturday 21 October, Friday 27 October, Saturday 28 October, Friday 3 November, Saturday 4 November.
Please wear sturdy footwear and warm clothing. We highly recommend bringing a torch - the abbey gets very dark, even with the floodlights.
