Summer 2019: Day 27 – Exploring Beverley
This summer I’ve posted what we’ve been up to each day of the school holidays – you can see a summary of our adventures at our 2019: 42 Days of Summer page.
This morning we enjoyed breakfast sat outside the Youth Hostel. The boys played in the gardens whilst I cuddled our friends two month old.
We headed into town via the huge Minster. It’s magnificent inside and out. I like that it is well used by residents with regular groups, services, and bell ringing. There was a shop and a help yourself to tea/coffee/juice (suggested donation £1) with colouring.
Next stop was the tourist info, which was inside a building called The Treasure House. It had a library, a small museum about Beverly with hands on activities, and an art gallery. I really enjoyed the current exhibition of wildlife by young photographers (the boys not so much).
I learned the difference between a cathedral and a minster is that the Cathedral is where the Bishop resides. The Cathedral for this area is York Minster.
Onwards to a big field next to the leisure centre for some football and gymnastics on the bike racks! I’d split from the group to retrace steps to find my EcoCoffee cup I though I’d lost, but it turned out it was in the side pocket of my bag!
The leisure centre with pool is a five minute walk from the YHA, and there’s also a small park close by.
We had another great evening of chat – the men/boys in the main living room and my friend and I in the quiet room. The men finished the day with a game of poker.
