Selby has undergone much change in recent years and First Hull Trains has supported this considerable residential and commercial expansion by providing a valuable transport link. Selby hosts one of the best open air markets in Yorkshire, where every Monday shoppers come from miles around for some excellent bargains. Selby is becoming more popular amongst visitors with a growing variety of shops and tea rooms, restaurants and bars.
Situated along the River Ouse, Selby’s most significant landmark is the Abbey. Together with the Abbot's Staithe this forms the only remains of a large monastery which was founded in the year 1069 by the monk Benedict who travelled from Auxerre in France. William the Conqueror, who was in York at the time, gave Benedict permission to found the Abbey and granted him lands to support it.
Selby is a great base for First Hull Trains passengers who are looking to discover the delights of Yorkshire.
