Known to millions of cycling fans worldwide as one of the host towns for the 2018 Tour de Yorkshire, Beverley's landmarks include the gothic Beverley Minster with its 13th century stone carvings and stained glass, the 15th century North Bar and impressive Georgian streets with a number of listed buildings.
Beverley is a haven for lovers of shopping with its mix of independent boutique shops and high street stores including Jo Malone, Seasalt, Barbour and Hotel Chocolat plus a bustling market every Saturday that features local produce and crafts.
Some of Britain’s best flat racing takes place at the famous racecourse which has been part of the town’s lifeblood since the 16th century. There is afternoon and evening racing on the Westwood course from April to September, with highlights of Summer Festival Race night in July and Ladies Day and a Family Racing Day in August.
Beverley also boasts a number of quirky cafes, including the cycling themed Café Vélo, acclaimed restaurants and historic pubs, and a visit wouldn’t be complete without a stroll and an ice cream on the Westwood, a large area of pasture land to the east of the town.
From Beverley, you can take the train south to Hull in north to Driffield, Bridlington, Filey and Scarborough.
A short walk from the town centre, just past the railway station, the Flemingate Centre is home to several shops, places to eat and a cinema.
According to Wikipedia, Beverley inspired the naming of the city of Beverly, Massachusetts which in turn was the impetus for Beverly Hills, California.
