Beverley is a lovely old town with lots of shops, antiques, full cream teas and the beautiful Minster. The Minster is jam packed with history and some lovely people to answer any questions you may have. The Minster is disabled friendly as my Dad is in a wheelchair through side access which was brilliant. There's so much to see inside,... More

lovely place, but the place doesn't make the church, it's the people, so go along, read the banners, and look into trying their alpha course, it sounds compelling and very interesting....

No trip to Beverley would be complete without visiting the minster. Its fine architecture and craftsmanship some of which stems from the middle ages are contrasted by a downloadable smartphone app which will guide you around the many features of the building. Friendly and helpful staff are on hand to answer any questions. A small charge is made for photography,... More

It is not the York Minister, but that said, don't let it put you off form going to see it. It too has lovely architecture, a tour up one of its towers. Give it a view you will not be disappointed.

The interior is full of interesting features. It is harmonious and flooded with light. The minster dominates the town but the view as one drives to Beverley from the south is not to be missed.

This is a church unlike any other in the UK. Technically it is only a parish church, but has a building larger than some cathedrals, and is rich in fascinating, beautiful architecture. Everywhere you look, you will see something to delight your eyes. The grandeur of the place is awe-inspiring, without being overwhelming. Much effort is made by guides and... More
