Byland Abbey is the perfect place to stop on a family day out, or if you’re walking or cycling in the North York Moors National Park.
Once one of the greatest monasteries in England, Byland Abbey inspired the design of church buildings throughout the North.
A truly outstanding example of early gothic architecture, it inspired the design of the famous York Minster rose window. The Museum displays colourful interpretation panels together with archaeological finds from the site, giving the visitor a fascinating insight into monastic life in Yorkshire.
To complete your day out in Yorkshire, why not visit nearby Rievaulx Abbey and Helmsley Castle.
