The estate is open to visitors and includes many miles of all-weather walking routes and a variety of attractions for people of all ages.

Explore the ruins of the Priory and discover a landscape full of history and legend. Walk along the riverside, woodland and moorland paths or simply relax beside the river with a picnic with natural life – Bolton Abbey has it all.

The landscape at Bolton Abbey inspires and has been admired in the past by artists such as Turner, Ruskin and Royle, as well as the poet Wordsworth.

I hope you find it as inspiring as I did.
