Beverley is the county town of the East Riding of Yorkshire, located 8 miles north-west of Hull, 10 miles east of Market Weighton and 12 miles west of Hornsea.
The town is around 1,300 years old, so there are plenty of historic buildings the most notable being Beverley Minster. This is the main landmark in the town. Founded early in the 8th century, although damage caused during the Viking invasions and the Norman Conquest means that the present building only dates back to 1220. Today, it’s one of the finest examples of a Gothic church of cathedral size in Europe. St. Mary’s Church, which was initially a chapel of ease for the town’s residents. Inside the church is a carving of the ‘Jolly rabbit’, which is said to have been the inspiration for the white rabbit in Lewis Carol’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’.
Today, tucked away down these narrow streets are antique shops and craft arcades, and on every other corner is a pub full of history and atmosphere. And market day is as lively and colourful.Throughout each year there are various annual music festivals in the town, catering to different kinds of music. This includes; the Early Music Festival in May, the Beverley Folk Festival in June which features two days of folk music, comedy and workshops, the Jazz Festival in August, followed by the Chamber Music Festival in September.
Beverley hosts an annual Literature Festival, Kite Festival and a biannual puppet festival. In terms of sport, the most noted field of participation is horse racing with the Beverley Racecourse. The sport has a long history in Beverley, with evidence of a permanent race track reaching back as far as 1690, while its first grandstand was built in 1767.
