Beverley Minster is a wonderful cathedral-sized church as worthy of a visit as the one in York. It was founded in 700 by St. John of Beverley who is interred at the centre of the nave.

The Minster has interesting Stained Glass windows, a clock which chimes regularly, many monuments and memorials a beautifully carved quire and a medieval vaulted nave. If you visit on the right day you may be able to hear an organ recital or even see a wedding taking place in the summer and hear the bells pealing for the happy couple.

Some days you can also take a guided tour of the roof spaces of the minster, which is worth doing if you are able to climb several hundred windy steps. Up there you can see the stone masonary crane and bishops chairs.
