Things to do in Beverley, East Yorkshire

Beverley Beck © Gary Beech

The historic town of Beverley could be considered the East Riding's answer to the equally charming spa town of Harrogate, in North Yorkshire. With its eclectic mix of classic and modern day in every respect, it really is a town of multiple complementing personalities.

On your journey approaching Beverley, you will see the stunning spires of the Minster stroking the skyline as you drive through the surrounding villages and countryside. Why not peer inside on a visit whilst you are there? For those who will not choose to drive towards Beverley, the train station and a number of buses will bring you within a short walk of the muffled hum of the town centre's spirit.

You will notice during your time here that there is a pleasant, muted vibrancy which fills the air by day and a welcoming, increased pace to enjoy in the evening at the bars, pubs and restaurants that are on offer.

Its popular shopping quarters are sprinkled with charming tea rooms and various friendly, unpretentious public houses together with an unobtrusive number of both upmarket and well-known high street stores. It also boasts vast, twice weekly markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays, meaning there really is no excuse to return home empty handed after your visit!

In terms of dining in Beverley, you will discover a varying range of cuisine is on offer, from brasserie-styled meals to Turkish fare in the "Seraglio" restaurant - all eager to please your palate.

A number of new businesses are choosing Beverley to bring their expertise and skills to, as well as contributing to its rolling economy. Facilities in the area have improved steadily over recent years. The Treasury on the outskirts of the town centre is a prime example of a recent, successful building venture and prized facility in the area.

Many of the new buildings are sympathetically built to blend in with the historic features of the area, or have been restored as such, contributing to expansion of the town in a way which is still in-keeping with its olden charm.

Overall Beverley is definitely a place that is worth a visit, no matter what age you are. There are plenty of shops. There are plenty of eateries and restaurants. There are plenty of quality accommodations.

With lots to admire both in the centre and on the outskirts of Beverley, it is a humble jewel in the East Riding crown.
