The parish church of St Helen is a Grade-II listed building,[3] while the village has one pub, The Kings Head (the Sloop Inn closed some decades ago). Neighbouring Asselby also has a pub, The Black Swan.

Unusually, Barmby is situated at the end of a long dead-end road, on which also lies the village of Asselby.

Barmby was served by Barmby railway station on the Hull and Barnsley Railway between 1885 and 1955.[4]
