Reviewed 13 January 2014 via mobile

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

“lovely church with a fab little cafe for a sit down.”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

Great history lessons to be learnt in this lovely Abbey. There is also a fab little area where you can purchase tea/coffee and rest for a while. I have recently taken my 98 yr old Gran here in her wheelchair. There is great ramp entrance to the side, but then turning to enter through the door is not overly easy.

“loose yourself in the history”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

this is one of the best things about selby the rest of it can sink back into the river ouse but this place and the reason for it being built is one of th few reasons to make the effort to stop off.
