Beverley has always been a popular visitor destination. Renowned for its exquisite 13th Century Minster, the town is home to a lively market, a thriving music scene, a mediaeval skyline all surrounded by open countryside including the meadows of Beverley Westwood and the Yorkshire Wolds. Beverley first became a tourist destination in the 12th Century and the town's cobbled streets and courtyards continue to attract history buffs, music lovers and shoppers.
Medieval Beverley was a renowned centre for secular music, and its guild of musicians was particularly powerful. It controlled all the minstrels in the north of England, and provided minstrels to serve as the 'waits' (watchmen) of the town. Three of the guild's ceremonial chains are on display in the town's guildhall. For a closer view of these medieval musicians and their instruments, visit Beverley Minster to marvel at the largest collection of minstrel carvings in the world. Dating from the fourteenth century, there are over seventy figures playing around twenty different early musical instruments.
Enjoy the sights and browse the streets of Toll Gavel, Ladygate and Hengate on market day. Then, soak up the atmosphere in one of Beverley's many historic pubs. Beverley town has a variety of public houses, some of which have become tourist attractions themselves. Examples include the Sun Inn, the town's oldest public house dating back to around 1530. There are over 40 public houses in Beverley - the vast majority have been there for over a century.
