The Beverley Arms is located in the beautiful market town of Beverley, in East Riding of Yorkshire, with markets and shops and historic attractions galore.
The town is particularly renowned for the 15th century North Bar. This gate separates the North Bar Within and North Bar Without, which form one of the region’s most beloved landmarks. Here you’ll find a range of listed buildings. During the English Civil War, King Charles I and his sons stayed at North Bar House while trying to convince John Hotham to surrender Kingston-Upon-Thames.
One of Beverley’s other top attractions is Beverley Minster. The Minster has been a place of Christian worship for more than 1,500 years but, as a place of sanctuary, dates as far back as the 8th century when a monastery occupied the church’s location. Three different styles of Gothic architecture have played a part in its evolution. Step inside and marvel at the impressive stone carvings and stained glass.
If you’re looking to shop as well as explore, head for Flemingate Beverley. This shopping centre is close to the Minster and features a range of big name brands. You can round off the day with a movie at the cinema in the centre, and if you need to take time out from all that shopping, there are plenty of places to go for a coffee and something to eat.
Maybe you fancy doubling your money? Experience the excitement of a flutter down at Beverley Racecourse. This racecourse has been a feature of the town for more than 300 years and has undergone a variety of modernisations to offer high-quality horseracing events.
Of course, you can wind down from the day’s adventures with some supper or a nightcap back home at The Beverley Arms.
