A lovely place to play relax and have a great time. Many stunning events held throughout the year. Green spaces for picnics and play, all against the majestic Abbey.

A lovely little place to walk around and take photos with spare grass space which gets very busy in summer and a little shop with toilets.

Kirkstall Abbey, is ruins of a medieval, Cistercian monastery that was founded in 1152. We spend a lot of time during summer attending the festivals. We love this place for walk and running.

If you are in Leeds when this happens there's lots of lovely food on offer. Nice café for coffee. Didn't have time to visit museum this visit. Shop/museum toilets are a history lesson and worth a visit!

Visited on Halloween weekend... If I knew that there was a party I would've got a costume myself! Nice market with food and crafts... Joyful afternoon! Good photo opportunities as well and possibility to explore the ruins of the Abbey away from the crowds.

Thank you for organising this and free of charge too which is wonderful for families. The children loved it !! The staff in the visitor centre are really lovely and helpful. Bonus is there is a lovely playground nearby too.
