The local area guide to living in Beverly

Beverley sits on the brink of the stunning Yorkshire Wolds, and is one of the most prominent towns in East Yorkshire Riding thanks to its preserved historical buildings and its famous racing event.

The town’s rich history includes a reputation as one of North England’s religious centres during the Middle Ages. It survived much of the war and the industrial revolution intact, and is now known for its cobbled streets and attractive buildings. It’s a popular choice for retirees, thanks to its ample greenery, slow pace of living and charming architecture dating back to the 7th Century.

Every week the local community comes together for the Saturday Market, which is a celebration of local product. Crowds also gather for the annual Ladies Day event at Beverly Racecourse, which is a prominent day on the social calendar.

Information about the local residents

There are approximately 30,000 residents in Beverley, the vast majority of which describe their ethnicity as white British. There are a high number of retirees in the area, but there are also low levels of unemployment amongst working-age residents.

The main employment industries around Beverley are health, education, retail and manufacturing. The number of older residents is higher here than the UK as a whole, which is reflective of East Yorkshire Riding, and there are low crime levels.

Nearby schools

Beverley is home to a number of secondary schools, but the most famous is Beverley Grammar School for Boys – a school that was founded in 700AD. This school boasts a number of celebrity alumni, and received an ‘outstanding’ rating in a recent report by school inspector Ofsted.

Girls attend the similarly rated Beverley High School.

Getting around

One of the most popular ways to reach Beverley is by car, with the A1079 providing easy access to the major cities of Hull and York

There are also convenient public transport links. Beverley has its own train station, which runs regular services to Hull, Scarborough and Doncaster. From Doncaster, you can catch a train to London, which takes approximately three hours.

There are also regular buses that operate around the town and to neighbouring areas such as Bridlington and Driffield.

Local shops

Beverley is famed for its racecourse, as well as the Beverley and East Riding Golf Club.

The town also hosts a number of summer festivals, such as the Jazz Festival, the Folk Festival and the Chamber Music Festival. There’s also an autumn food festival that features local produce and offers cooking demonstrations.

This locally grown food is often available at the town market, which runs on Wednesday and Saturday. As well as fresh fruit, veg, meat and fish, there are flowers, accessories, homeware and more on offer. The rest of the town is populated with high street shops and independent shops, as well as a number of pubs. The oldest pub in the town is The Sun Inn, which originated in 1530.

With its pretty cobbled streets and pedestrianised town centre, Beverley is a charming place to spend a quiet afternoon.
