One of the most beautiful and evocative places that you can visit during a trip through the north of England is the set formed by the remains of the great medieval Abbey of Fountains and Studley Royal Gardens. According to expert-travel.org in the Yorkshire region, near the medieval city of York you can visit the remains of a medieval abbey which dates back to the twelfth century. The Abbey Fountains are definitely a must on your tour of this part of England as they were a great religious center in the Middle Ages but the monastery was dissolved at the end of the sixteenth century.
Later during the eighteenth century next to the old medieval abbey were built some typical English water gardens which finished configuring a set of great natural beauty that encourages a visit in a nice setting.
