“Beautiful abbey”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Definitely the jewel in the crown in Selby. Very beautiful and interesting abbey with lots of information boards dotted around with some interesting facts and beautiful stained glass windows. Not much else to see in Selby from a tourist point of view.

We went for carols in the Abbey and it was amazing. The atmosphere was fab and even better we were recorded for BBC radio!
Had a good look around the beautiful abbey after the carols lots to see and loads of information

“Do not ignore the charms of this beautiful building”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Wonderful building full of historical information. The staff are knowledgeable and full of information and are not 'in your face' unlike some other historical buildings. It's clean and tidy and entrance is free. An oasis of calm in the middle of town and even the visitors have made mention that this is more worthwhile to visit than York Minster, praise indeed

Have lived in Selby for 10 years and have passed the abbey many times but never ventured in ... Finally had the opportunity to go in and what a lovely building inside would recommend a visit if your ever in selby
