Beverley Guildhall

Guildhall, Register Square, Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU17 9XX

Beverley's elegant Guildhall, medieval bones dressed in 18th century clothes, and a Victorian Astounding Inventor too.

The Guildhall has a wonderful interior behind a plain classical front and 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 original 17th century furniture and an elegant parlour with a silver collection dating back over several centuries.
