Selby Abbey is steeped with astonishing history, an archive of interesteing facts. It's interior has a quite hypnotic and calming effect, that is in a good way. On departing, one can feel completely relaxed.

Living close to Selby I see this church at lase twice a week and have visited on many occasions. There are practically no words to describe to the feeling of the history of this place and it is well worth a visit.

We visited this beautiful Abbey during our visit to Selby on Bank Holiday Monday Market Day. It had stalls, cakes and drinks for the public. It really is a wonderful building to see, especially at such a special time of the year.
