Welcome to Beverley

The market town of Beverley is a beautiful place to live, the town first became a tourist destination in the 12th Century and the town’s pretty cobbled streets and courtyards continue to attract history buffs, music lovers, racegoers and shoppers.  Property ranges from listed townhouses and apartments in the centre to modern new builds on the outskirts. For a perfect introduction, head for landmarks like the Minster, St. Mary’s Church and the market. Then, experience some of Britain’s finest flat racing, or dip into one of the many acclaimed local restaurants.

Local history

Widely regarded as one of Europe’s finest Gothic churches, Beverley Minster is famous for its abundance of 13th Century stone carvings, stained glass and decoration. Nearby, St. Mary’s Church is also blessed with many architectural wonders and oddities. For a taste of medieval Beverley, take the colourful town trail, or browse the bustling streets of Toll Gavel, Ladygate and Hengate on market day. Then, soak up the atmosphere in one of Beverley’s many historic pubs.

Leisure and culture

Horse racing has been a part of Beverley life since the 16th Century and the course is known for its regular flat racing and family-friendly race days. The picturesque town centre is also a good place to shop for designer style and the mediaeval market is an ideal spot to pick up local cheese, sausages and crafts. If you love live music, you may also want to make a date with the Beverley Folk Festival or the Early Music Festival and catch some of Britain’s best live performers.

Asides from its regular markets, Beverley is well known for hosting food and music festivals throughout the year. Beverley has fascinating cobbled streets containing a wide variety of shops, cafes, cosy coffee shops, fine dining restaurants and bars.  And if all that seems a little too energetic, escape to the wildflower meadows of Westwood and the Yorkshire Wolds.
