Byland Abbey dog walk, Yorkshire


Byland Abbey is the focal point of this walk - a  dignified ruin of one of the largest Cistercian monastery complexes in Yorkshire.  It would have supported around 500 core staff back in the 12th century. 


Entry to Byland Abbey ruins is free and the site opens at 1000. There's a cafe opposite the car park and dogs are welcome at the garden tables. WCs at the cafe.

No rubbish bins of any kind.


Dogs are welcome to visit the abbey ruins with you and need to be on leads. There's quite a lot of green space for scampering at the back, and Jem was very happy with his visit.
