Go on a beautiful springtime nature walk around the abbey and see if you can spot all the scarecrows specially designed by our staff.

In days gone by the abbey’s monks would have used scarecrows to keep the birds away from their crops. Nowadays we love our feathered friends, so try and spot the local wildlife while you’re here too!

Explore the historic ruins of Kirkstall Abbey and learn all about its history in the Visitor Centre. Enjoy wandering through the park and woodlands, and take a leisurely stroll beside the River Aire.

Discover things to do and see at Kirkstall Abbey.
