Pocket Guide: Byland Abbey Byland Abbey Hotels

North Yorkshire is one of the United Kingdom's most popular holiday destinations, drawing in tourists of all persuasions. The historic City of York is the UK's most visited city outside of London, and the famous Yorkshire Dales can match any corner of the country when it comes to picturesque walks. The county was scarcely touched by the industrial era, meaning the vast swathes of countryside are peppered only by welcoming villages, stately homes and monasteries. One such attraction lies at Byland Abbey. Located in the Ryedale district, the Abbey is close to some of the best hotels in North Yorkshire.

Inspirational Architecture

Byland Abbey was founded in 1135 as a Savigniac abbey. Despite a number of tough years after its formation, by the 14th Century, Byland Abbey was considered one of the shining lights of the north. It was dissolved, along with most in the county, in the middle of the 16th Century.

The church's unique design was an early example of Gothic architecture, and went on to inspire the design of churches all over the north of England. The ruins - which are now managed by English Heritage - still feature some of the impressive design elements which made the abbey so special in its day. These include a large rose window and some brightly coloured floor tiles.

Bringing History to Life

Byland Abbey is more than just a rubble of ruins. The site boasts a fascinating museum offering visitors a rare insight into the lives of monks living in England some 600 years ago. With several picnic areas and food and drink for sale on the site, Byland Abbey also makes an ideal stopping point for those exploring the North York Moors National Park.
