The historic town of Selby is one of Yorkshire's hidden gems. Why not head off the beaten track and explore the huge and truly breathtaking mediaeval Abbey, discover a crumbling 15th centry gatehouse and then settle down for a memorable meal in one of the town's many finest restaurants. Located in the picturesque Yorkshire countryside, this town is worth a visit on your short break or holiday.
The pretty town of Selby is dominated by the superb Abbey, founded in AD1069. Having stood for almost 1,000 years, the Abbey is a testament to endurance during some of Englands most destructive periods in history.
