About Beverley

Intersol are a based in in Beverley, a market town in East Yorkshire, England. The town has a lovely Minster which is used quite frequently as a TV setting for historical dramas such as Victoria, King Charles III and Gunpowder. To the west of Beverley is a large area of common land called the Westwood which is adjacent to the racecourse and as you enter Beverley from the north, you'll pass through a 15th century gate known as North Bar which is an experience in itself.

These festivals bring lots of tourists into the town who fall in love with its cobbled streets, historical buildings and small town charm,

Eating out

Beverley Marketing

The town centre is bordered by cosmopolitan pavement cafes, quirky cafes, cosy coffee shops and fine dining restaurants. Indeed, the amount of restaurants in Beverley keeps growing and the quality is ever increasing. Most of the restaurants are independent but there are quite a few "chain" restaurants too. If you like a drink then you're spoilt for choice although we'd recommend visiting Nellies (the White Horse pub), a working pub since 1666 with dark, labyrinthine corridors and suprises around every corner.

Shop til you drop

Every Saturday you can browse the large variety of stalls in the Saturday market which provides a vibrant and friendly atmosphere. On Wednesday there is a smaller market at the other end of the pedestrianised shopping street which has a smaller selection of goods on offer. There are lots of small independent retailers in the town. The Georgian Quarter, close to North Bar, hosts a range of smaller boutique shops and the antiques centre on Toll Gavel has a range of interesting antiques, collectables and furniture. In the shadow of the Minster sits Flemingate, the town's newest leisure destination which boasts a cinema, restaurants and larger chain stores such as Debenhams.

Walks around Beverley

The tourist information centre in the town has a range of activities to do for visitors to the area. You can get a copy of the Medieval Town Trail or the Elwell Trail, a series of 22 replica paintings by eminent local artists Fred and Mary Elwell. If you like walking there are lots of walks in the town and the surrounding area. One of our favourites is a walk along Beverley Beck which takes you to the lock on the River Hull and is only a short walk from the town centre.

So if you're in the area, why not come and see what this beautiful and historic setting has to offer. Beverley's sense of charm and friendliness is clear to locals, regular visitors and tourists alike who've been returning in their droves for years.
