Beverley Minster is a Church of England Parish Church - the largest in England. Founded in 700 AD, the current building was completed in 1400. On Mondays to Saturdays we are open 9.00 - 5.30 (April - October), and 9.00 - 4.00 (November - March) Sunday worship is at 8.00, 10.30 and 5.30, and the Minster is open in between times. The Shop is open Monday - Saturday. Admission is free. 'Serve yourself' refreshments available. Contact us for details of tours.
We visit Beverley regularly and often call into Beverley Minster whilst shopping. It is a very peaceful place which is very welcoming and there are always volunteers around to share their knowledge and enthusiasm. The carved heads are a delight to find and wonderful examples of the masons humour and imagination. There are regular displays such as local artists which add to the experience. Free to enter and have a quiet moment.

Beverley Westwood is a great piece of common pastureland free for all to use (unless playing golf). Great to let the kids run off-leash or walk the dog - but please clean up after your dog! During the winter good for sledging after a decent snowfall. During the summer great for a picnic. There are several small wooded areas or vast areas of open grassland. No vehicles are permitted - thankfully.

The church was founded in 1120.The Chancel ceiling dates from 1445 and depicts 40 kings of England. Look up at the vestry ceiling to see the amazing constellations. Notice the White Rabbit , a stone carving about 1330 of a rabbit carrying a scrip and staff, supposedly the model for the character in Alice in Wonderland,

A visit to Beverley Racecourse is a seriously good day out, a fact that the people of Beverley have been quite rightly proud of for over 300 years. Set in the stunning surroundings of The Westwood, the racecourse hosts horse racing between April and September every year. We have 19 race meetings in total, 11 of which feature extra entertainment and fun, from the family-themed May Day with a petting zoo and funfair rides to the glamour of Ladies' Day. For the racing fan, our Very British Raceday in June with its two feature races for the country's best two-year-old horses sees them battle it out in a fast and furious contest up our infamous uphill 5 furlong sprint (a furlong being about 660 feet for the as-yet uninititated.) There's always a warm welcome at Beverley, and whether you prefer to bring the family with a picnic and a rug or your friends for an afternoon of fun and catching up, you'll find lots of like-minded people enjoying the day and the excitement of watching your horse thundering home. Tickets in advance are much the cheapest way to visit and can be bought via our website, along with lots more information about all of our racedays. Let us show you how much fun an afternoon at the races can be! 2017 Fixtures At A Glance Weds 19 April The White Rabbit in Easterland Raceday Thurs 27 April Afternoon Racing Mon 01 May May Day Raceday Tues 16 May Afternoon Racing Wed 31 May Half Term Raceday Sat 10 June A Very British Raceday Tues 20 June 70s Racenight Feat: Bus Stop Tues 27 June Afternoon Racing Fri 07 July Party on the Pasture Racenight Sat 08 July The Big Saturday Raceday Tues 18 July Afternoon Racing Mon 24 July Carnival Racenight Tues 01 Aug Roll Up, Roll Up Raceday Weds 16 Aug Flemingate Ladies' Day Thurs 17 Aug Afternoon Racing Feat: The Camel Derby Sun 27 Aug A Sunday Hop Sat 02 Sep Totepool Beverley Bullet Raceday Weds 20 Sept Afternoon Racing Tues 26 Sept Season Closer

The East Riding Treasure House is a heritage centre providing museum, library and archive facilities under one roof, plus access to the adjoining Edwardian exhibition spaces of the Beverley Art Gallery. The Treasure House tower provides splendid views over the rooftops of Beverley.
Booked a visit to go through archives to try and discover information regarding a relative in the East Riding Yeomanry. The staff were extremely helpful, with getting the documents and helping with questions. Can not speak more highly of them, they were excellent. It always a pleasure to visit the Treasure House-had a Sandwich in the cafe, which was good as well

ERT is a vibrant, professional theatre located in a converted Baptist chapel in Beverley. Founded by actor and Beverley resident Vincent Regan and achieved through a huge community effort, the theatre opened its doors for the first time in December 2014. It has since delivered an eclectic programme of quality theatre, music and entertainment to the people of HU17 and beyond.
Performance of John Goldbers "Shakers". Delightful small theatre. Lovely cafe with a tasty menu and proper food made to order. Everything to like.Hi Clare, Many thanks for the great review, we hope to see you again.

Visited Beverley on 2 September for a day out. Came across the market which was a pleasant surprise. A good mixture of traditional fruit and veg stalls and household goods but also a good few craft and artisan stalls selling foodstuffs and insence sticks. Good atmosphere and friendly sellers. Well worth a visit

The Bar is the ancient remnant of Beverley's Northern Toll gate, which defined the Northern limit of the town. Inside the city city side of the Bar the bi-annual horse fair was held on the street within the bar while the bi-annual sheep fair was held in the street without the bar. Bars were built in a number of cities in England - like an ancient DART managed crossing or the M6 Toll - in the 12th and 13th centuries. North Bar is the only survivor in Beverley. It is a Grade 1 listed building and it is worth walking under and enjoying some of the finer details in paintings, and portcullis grooves which it offers for those who take a moment to enjoy reaching back Eight centuries in history. Built originally in the early fifteenth century for the princely sum of £97.11 pence Beverley could make more of this.

Situated in the Georgian quarter just before North Bar this is a very pleasant and peaceful little garden. Having been constructed on the site of an old burial ground it is nice to see that, rather than remove or destroy the old gravestones, they have been kept and placed around the garden walls, which is respectful and appropriately "in memorium" as well as being interesting and decorative.
