My wife and I love visiting places that have a Cathedral or Minster. However, Beverley gives the impression it has not looked at how other Cathedrals and Minsters have managed themselves to cater for tourists. There was no set times for guided tours and the booklets hande out by the friendly staff at the entrance were not that good. There... More

The Beverley Minster is truly spectacular steeped in history totally unspoilt by the changes regarding the volume of traffic and the increase of the population maintaining its quiet peaceful location at the southern end of Highgate. Because it's so historical it is used regularly for tv period dramas and film sets. Beverley Minster is beautiful and is a must for... More

A truly grand building. Surrounded by beautiful Georgian townscape. Incredible carvings and decoration. You can truly get a sense of what things must have been like centuries ago. A rainy morning in Feb is probably not going to be the best day to see it, but I was still highly impressed. Shame it didn't open until 9am so I could... More

Lovely little market town, very quant, great selections of shops. Spotlessly clean with an extensive selections of bars, restaurants and coffee shops, well worth a visit. They were filming the second series of Victoria outside the Minster too, which was a added bonus.

Visited with my daughters and grand daughterd during the Xmas tree festival. It was really enjoyable. Volunteers as usual were approachable and informative. One of the Clergy say up in tonight a candle, and made time to speak with us and to share with us a prayer and a blessing to the memory of a loved one recently passed. This... More

Stunning minster rising above the town is all that it promises. Visitors can park adjacently. We listened to the choir rehearsing, and the acoustic is wonderful. Magnificent.
