Facilities

Refreshments

Coffee and tea are usually available in the north transept (opposite the shop) on a serve yourself basis. A donation is requested.

Prayer

St. Katherine’s Chapel (in the far south-east corner of the building) is set aside for prayer. You may light a candle in the Retroquire next to the Chapel.

The Quiet Garden

Beverley Minster Quiet Garden is part of the Quiet Garden Movement. It is an oasis of peace near to the historic Minster and is adjacent to the Parish Centre. Pilgrims flocked to the Minster in medieval times to venerate the bones of Saint John of Beverley, a renowned healer and worker of miracles. The Minster continues to provide a place of meditation and prayer in the Quiet Garden, providing hospitality for 21st century pilgrims.

You will find an entrance suitable for wheelchairs about 50 metres east of the main entrance. If required there is a wheelchair available for use inside the building. Guide dogs are permitted.

There are toilet facilities just outside the accessible entrance and toilets for the disabled in the Parish Hall.
