This Minster is a spectacular building. The stain glass windows are as good as any I have seen. The dimensions of this Minster make you feel quite small in such a wonderful structure. Do visit and, if you get chance, do go to an organ recital. The organ is a very special instrument and well worth listening to.

My husband and I visited Beverley last weekend and went to the Minster. To start the views of this beautiful building are stunning on the approach to the town. Then it was like stepping into the grandeur of a cathedral with the intimacy of a local parish church. There are so many interesting features including a range of misericords and... More

A most interesting and beautiful church with much of interest and most helpful volunteer guides. The military memorial chapels were most moving and the architecture sublime. One niggle - why can't the misericords be lifted up so that the carving can be seen as they are at St. Mary's? A visit to the Minster should be combined with one to... More

An old church with much history to look at. It was recently used in the ITV drama Victoria as "Westminster Abbey"

The minster is really on a par with a great many cathedrals in other cities in England, but it remained a minster, and was never raised to a Diocesean see. The first church, with an attached monastery was built at Beverley in the 7th century by St John of Beverley who had trained under St Hilda at Whitby. when you... More

Not the largest Minster but stunning non-the-less. Often overlooked by visitors to Beverley and as a local I don't visit enough this gem on my doorstep. Go!
