VISIT SELBY, THE HIDDEN GEM OF YORKSHIRE
The historic market town of Selby is a civil parish in North Yorkshire, 10 miles south of York on the River Ouse, and ideally located to explore York, The Yorkshire Dales, and the North York Moors. Selby also has convenient and direct transport links to Hull, York, London King’s Cross and other various destinations.
No trip to Selby is complete without visiting the magnificent, medieval Selby Abbey which is the traditional birthplace of Henry I who was born around 1070. The Abbey is one of the largest parish churches in Britain. Rich in history, Selby’s origins date back to the establishment of a Viking settlement by the River Ouse.
If you are a keen walker or cyclist, the Trans Pennine Trail is easily accessible from Selby. Visit the regular Farmer’s Markets and come again to feast at the annual food festival.
