Selby Abbey Tour

Our regular free Selby Abbey guided tours can be booked online here. We offer these tours on a free basis with the hope of making our history and heritage accessible to all. All donations are welcomed and encouraged to support the upkeep of the Abbey.

In this tour you will uncover the Abbey’s hidden gems with our professionally trained volunteer guides. Explore the Abbey’s resilience through the centuries discovering stained glass, including the famous Washington Window, beautiful architecture, and hidden quirks such as disguised carvings, lepers squint and mason’s marks.

Tower Tours

Due to the need for social distancing, we will not be providing tower tours at the moment. Please contact us for more information if necessary.

Book a Tour

Why not join one of our new guided tours, free of charge, with donations welcome. These will all be delivered with social distancing and we are limiting the numbers to 10 per tour to adhere to the current government guidance on tour guiding (which still allows for a maximum of 30). They will last a maximum of one hour and must be pre-booked so we can manage the numbers. Tickets can be booked online, we look forward to welcoming you soon.
