The stunning market town of Beverley has beauty in abundance, from the 13th century minster and historical buildings, to its cobbled streets with small town charm, there is something for everyone. We have so much to see and do, Beverley is the perfect place to spend many days exploring.
Visit the heart of Beverley’s Saturday market which opens for business at 8am every Saturday, come rain or shine. It is also the focal point of events throughout the year from the start and finish of the ‘elite’ cycle race, to Beverley’s Food Festival and home to the Festival of Christmas.
Close to Saturday market is Dyer Lane and Swaby’s Yard, quaint little streets and a square bursting with life hosting plenty of shops and cafes.
Take a walk down Toll Gavel and Butchers Row where you will find the many shops and cafes leading to Wednesday market which has a lively shopping and social scene to rival its sister location, Saturday market.
Don’t forget to head down the many small lanes leading off from the main drag, where you will find Beverley’s hidden gems that are simply unmissable. Treat yourself to something unique from one of these independent shops and have a break from the ‘norm’.
Also visit North Bar Within and North Bar Without to see one of the East Ridings most treasured landmarks, the 15th Century North Bar. This is one of the greatest listed buildings in the region. In recognition of its unique status and place in the town’s history, the area was rebranded ‘The Georgian Quarter’ to represent the unrivalled lifestyle and shopping that it has to offer, as well as St Mary’s Arcade hidden away towards the North Bar.
Beverley is also home to Flemingate, the newest shopping area to come to the town, which has added another reason to spend time wandering around the many streets of Beverley. It hosts a number of popular shops and eateries, as well as the Parkway cinema. It’s just a short walk from the centre but there is also a free shuttle bus that runs every Saturday throughout the day.
So if you want to drink, dine, shop or simply relax, Beverley is a great destination. All of us fellow independent business owners look forward to seeing you all as you explore our trail.
Who we are
The New Economics Foundation coined the term ‘clone town’ to describe a phenomenon which is transforming British high streets. Real local shops have been replaced by swathes of identikit
chain stores that seem to spread like economic weeds, making high streets up and down the country virtually indistinguishable from one another. Retail spaces once filled with a thriving mix of independent butchers, newsagents, tobacconists, pubs, bookshops, greengrocers and family-owned general stores are becoming filled with faceless supermarket retailers, fast-food chains, and global fashion outlets.
