Coffee and tea are usually available in the north transept (opposite the shop) on a serve yourself basis. A donation is requested.
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.
We do not have a refectory but there are several cafes, restaurants and pubs nearby. Refreshments are normally served in the Parish Hall on the north side of the Minster on Bank Holidays and there are Shoppers’ Lunches served on some Saturdays thoughout the year.
There are toilet facilities just outside the accessible entrance and toilets for the disabled in the Parish Hall.
A permit is required for the use of cameras and videos and can be purchased from the shop or the welcomers for £3.
