This bustling market town boasts an attractive blend of past and present with lots to see and lots to do. The medieval town of Beverley is famous for its 13th century Minster, its market and its music. Toll Gavel, Butcher Row, Ladygate, Hengate, Wednesday Market and Saturday Market, the street names alone conjure up images of life in medieval Beverley.
Today, tucked away down these narrow streets are antique shops and craft arcades, and on every other corner is a pub full of history and atmosphere. And market day is as lively and colourful as ever. At one end of the town stands the magnificent Minster and the other equally as breathtaking is St Mary's Church.
On the edge of town is the lovely green pasture land of Beverley Westwood and the Racecourse where, as well as regular flat race meetings, a whole host of other events take place throughout the year.
Beverley's annual festivals of early music, chamber music and folk music attract visitors from far and wide and celebrate the town's ancient tradition as a centre of musical excellence. A scenic drive from Beverley explores the villages and countryside of the surrounding Yorkshire Wolds.
