Soak up the view from on top of a medieval minster

Beverley, East Yorkshire

Climb the steps of Beverley Minster to the roofline for a unique perspective on this fascinating building, held by many as a gothic masterpiece.

Built in 1220 and still standing strong, Beverley Minster dominates the skyline of the market town of Beverley in East Yorkshire. The church was venerated as the resting place of St John and saw thousands of visitors during the Middle Ages. 

Book ahead for a guided tour and you’ll hear fascinating tales, exploring parts of the building that are usually out of bounds. Climb up high among the building’s beams and roofline, where on a clear day you’ll find unparalleled views from the towers across Beverley and on to the Yorkshire Wolds. 

The tour lasts an hour and, once your feet are back on the ground, you can continue to marvel at the spectacular surroundings or make use of the wi-fi to follow the self-guided tour.

Beverley is a 15 minute train journey from the city of Hull in the northeast of England, and 3 hours from London by train.
