The Guildhall represents over 500 years of Beverley's civic pride. Based on a medieval great hall, the building itself was substantially re-modelled in the 18th and 19th centuries and features a stunning courtroom with ornate plaster ceiling by Giuseppe Cortese, a magistrates’ room with the original 17th century furniture and an elegant parlour with a silver collection dating back over several centuries.
This year you can see 'meet' Elizabeth Clark, a 19th-century woman from the local workhouse who is appearing in the courtroom.
