Ripon has a fabulous array of local attractions for the whole family to enjoy!

Not many places can say they boast a medieval cathedral, an ancient abbey and World Heritage site, a stately home and a family adventure park all within a stone’s throw from their city centre. Ripon does just that! Soak up the peace and awe of Ripon cathedral or visit Fountains Abbey ruins which sit alongside the spectacular Georgian water gardens of Studley Royal. If you are looking for luxury then look no further than Grantley Hall. This renowned 47 bedroom hotel destination is nestled in the countryside, just a short distance from Ripon and is home to an award-winning spa and Michelin starred restaurant to name but a few of its exceptional facilities.

Newby Hall offers a historic house full of fine furniture, paintings and extensive gardens alongside an adventure playground and miniature railway. If family fun is your thing then Lightwater Family Adventure is the place for you, with over 35 rides and attractions all ready for you to enjoy. From the marvellous Markenfield Hall to the wondrous waterways of the Ripon canal & marina, Ripon really does have all the ingredients for the perfect day out.
