Due to Covid 19 we are currenly unable to use the classroom facilities at Fountains Abbey for our workshops. However, we have 2 new venues in the area which we are able to use safely. These are Hazlewood Castle and Staveley Nature Reserve
National Trust Fountains Abbey with Studley Royal Water Garden is a stunning location for our photographic workshops and photography courses in North Yorkshire. The range and variety of subjects available is second to none. This venue provides us with the stark ruins of the once bustling Fountains Abbey, set in a deep wooded valley with lawns and meadows, typical of this stunning area of Yorkshire.
The lawns lead into both formal and informal water gardens containing statues and follies, all topped off with a deer park containing Red, Fallow and Roe deer which can be an exciting sight during the Autumn rut.
We cater for beginners to advanced photographers. The classroom elements of our workshops are held in the Dairy Room by the Westgate Enterance with easy access to the Abbey. A good restaurant and facilities are at hand within the centre, however, most of the day will be spent in the magnificent parkland.
