Spend a Day Around Ripon

Spend a Day Around Ripon

Take in the best of Ripon in a Day. 

Its a bit of dash but we think it can just about be done, of course you can spread this out over a day and a half or even two days if you choose.

Newby Hall

We begin with a morning at Newby Hall, (somewhere you could easily spend a whole day), take in the beautiful House, Gardens and the recently donated collections of Teddy Bears and Doll's Houses.

You can enjoy lunch at Newby Hall before you move on, or head into Ripon and enjoy a delicious lunch in Lockwoods. 

From there you can see where some of the ingredients for your lunch came from in the Workhouse Museum Gardens which provide Lockwoods with produce. 

Once you've viewed the museum you take in Ripon's magnificent Cathedral.

Lastly, we end the day with a stroll around Fountains Abbey & Studley Water Garden - the stunning World Heritage site that lies in the shadow of the remains of a Cistercian monastary.
