There are three things that the town of Beverley is well known for; music, the market and the 13th century minster. In fact people are starting to call it 'the festival town'.
The famous gothic minster is situated at the edge of the town along with St. Marys Church. The minster has many attractions and it is said that miracles took place here throughout the middle ages.
There is an annual music festival which brings people from many different places to listen to the folk, chamber and early music. This ancient town has traditionally been a place of musical excellence.
Wednesdays and Saturdays are market day in Beverley and the stall holders add their goods to the many local shops selling antiques and crafts. The crowds attracted to the town by the market, along with the many corner pubs, makes for a bustling atmosphere and colourful picture.
Another attraction of Beverley is the racecourse which hosts many events as well as the regular racing meetings. For most events you can get tickets on the day but for special events you will need to book in advance. Visitors can walk the Beverley Town Trail which will lead them to all of the town's highlights.
