“Great Church”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Another great church in Yorkshire. Free to enter. Lots of interesting features and people on hand to answer all your questions. It has a shop and toilets! Well worth a visit if you are interested in historical religious buildings.

“What a masterpiece”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Sadly closed when I was there but from the outside, it is a beautiful building. Got a fantastic photo of it as I arrived via the Westwood.

“Awe inspiring”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

I've been meaning to visit the Minister for 30 years, should have done it years ago. We were greeted by a lovely lady who gave us a potted history and then wandered around in wonderment at the craftsmanship .

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We were pleasantly surprised and well impressed by Beverley Minster. The architecture is as stunning as we expected. I paid £3 to be able to take photographs inside. £3 well spent! The money goes to the church, which they desperately need for the upkeep. There is a tourist attraction shop as well as seating for a tea break. Tea and coffee was availabe for £1 a cup. Very good value. We spent a long time inside unable to tear ourselves away from this stunning building.

“Gothic masterpiece.”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

There is nothing like a large church to stir the emotions, and Beverley Minster is no exception. A church on a cathedral scale, full or memorials and art. A wonderful building.
