Mark Newman on A Place of Public Resort – a history of visiting Fountains Abbey

September 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| £12

Tourism is nothing new; over the centuries increasing numbers of visitors flocked to Yorkshire to admire the sights, including Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal. Mark Newman’s research into ‘The Wonder of the North’ has uncovered some fascinating and entertaining stories about the experiences of these early tourists and the arrangements made for them, yet most of us know little of this aspect of the history of what is now a World Heritage Site.
