Welcome to Selby

One of Yorkshire’s hidden gems, the historic market town of Selby is home to the stunning Abbey and so much more. From Vikings and Romans, to royal births and dissolution, from fire and floods to ship building and thriving industries, the resilient town of Selby has witnessed it all.

Today, the streets surrounding the Abbey offer a range of small, independent shops and eateries, with a growing food and craft beer scene in the town. Running through the heart of the town, the High Street is also home to several well-known brands and High Street names.

Selby boasts a weekly Monday market, a regular farmers’ markets, held on the third Saturday of each month and a whole host of other events too, including food, drink and beers festivals. For the warmer days, Selby Park offers five acres of space to explore right in the heart of the town and you can even play a quick round of mini golf!

With a range of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants to discover, a stunning Abbey to explore and events to take part in, Selby provides an enjoyable shopping experience.
