Cistercian monks lived there and they didn't eat meat or talk at meal times! It is situated in Yorkshire about 200 miles away from London. We spent quite a long time at the abbey because Nick, my stepdad, took lots of pictures.
It took us a good four hours to get to Yorkshire. On the way we also stopped at Designer Outlet, which is a big shopping center. We spent ages there and we had a pizza. Then we went to my stepdad's sister's house in Scarborough on the Yorkshire coast. We had a great week-end and here are more pictures of Rievaulx.
The teddy bears are wearing the uniform the monks used to wear.
