A sample of the signs that warn you when you arrive at Rievaulx Abbey
But that didn’t deter us from visiting. Whitby Abbey was quite impressive but gloomy. Rievaulx Abbey was more welcoming, due to the soft hills and bucolic landscape.
It was so incredibly peaceful and beautiful that I couldn’t stop snapping! I took loads of photos, some of which you can see here. Right after Rievaulx Abbey, we went to Rievaulx Terrace and Temples, a landscape garden looking down on the Abbey.
