Beverley is a delightful market town in the East Riding of Yorkshire. Packed with narrow cobbled streets and beautiful buildings, it makes a exquisite place to visit. There are some lovely holiday cottages in and around Beverley that make a perfect getaway, so why should you take a holiday to Beverley?
Beverley is probably best known for its historic Minster, said to be the largest parish church in the UK. Its stunning gothic interior is well worth a visit. The Minster is open daily and is free of charge to enter.
Great shopping in Beverley!
The town centre is a lovely place to go shopping with many unique shops, great for shopping for a gift for a loved one or a present for yourself! Unusually, there are two market squares in Beverley, one in the main market square, which sells everything from fresh fruit and vegetables to home ware, clothes and more. The second market square, situated in the appropriately named Wednesday Market, is home to an open air market twice a week. Both market places are thriving places to visit, almost like stepping back in time!
Horse racing has been taking place in Beverley for more than three hundred years. Today, race meetings are held throughout the spring and summer months. Take a trip to the races and soak up the atmosphere of this historic location. Visit the Beverley Racecourse website for more information on the upcoming race meatings.
Wonderful food in Beverley
There are some lovely independent restaurants and cafes in Beverley. If you are out and about during the day then Lempicka, a funky cafe situated on Wednesday Market is a lovely place to stop for a bite to eat. For something really special, take a trip to Whites Restaurant on the North Bar. Owned by a local chef, Whites serves truly wonderful home cooked, top end food.
What about something to drink?
If you want to visit a truly unique pub, look no further than The White Horse. Locally known as Nellies, The White Horse is a pub that hasn’t changed at all for the last hundred years. The interior of the pub is lit exclusively by gas light!
Get out in the great outdoors in Beverley
After all that great food and drink, get out in the great outdoors and blow away the cobwebs! A stroll along the Beverley Beck or across The Westwood should do the trick!
