Fountains Abbey at Christmas

It's time for another dedicated Mumbler to head out on a Stray FM mission to explore where is worth visiting this Christmas. Fountains Abbey it's your turn!

There's no denying Christmas is a very busy time, and trying to fit in all that Christmas shopping, parties and days out into the final few weeks of the year can be a challenge. So Stray FM decided to help by doing some very serious research into the places to put on your list for 2017. We recruited the people who know best... Mumblers!

What is a Mumbler? Simple! Dedicated Mum's who research the best things to get up to in your local area for families and kids, so that when it's time to put the shoes on, pack the bags and head out for some fun, you have the very best advice on what's worth your time.... and pennies!

Today Jenny the Ripon and Nidderdale Mumbler is heading to Ripon to visit Fountains Abbey at Christmas time. With carol esinging, abbey lights at night, arts and crafts and a newly refurbished adventure playground, her two children enjoyed their research trip immensely!

You can hear how Jenny and her kids trip to Fountains Abbey went on the Stray FM Christmas Show below.
