St Mary's Beverley 1

Details

The church owes its great architectural interest to having been developed through 400 years of almost continuous building from 1120to 1530. Many of the Craft Guilds of the town adopted St Mary's and, during the Middle-Ages, it was regarded as the Parish Church of the town.

The West front is a fine example of late fourteenth century work and may well have influenced that of the Chapel of King's College, Cambridge, which was built more than half a century later.

See the carving of the March Hare said to have inspired Lewis Carol's Alice in Wonderland, see the unique ceiling of Kings painted in 1446 and representing the Kings of England before that time, see the highly decorated ceiling of stars and constellations.

On special occasions or through advance booking you can see the "priest's rooms" accessed through a small door and spiral staircase and containing all sorts of unusual treasures.

You will receive a warm welcome when visiting St Mary's.
