To celebrate the opening of our beautiful new Beverley store, we speak to store manager Tracey Adams to discover what puts this market town on the map.
What is your favourite thing about Beverley?
The best thing about living in Beverley has got to be having the Westwood Pasture on my doorstep. Whatever the season, the Westwood has the most amazing walks and scenery.
If someone was visiting Beverley for a weekend, what would you recommend they do?
Visitors should make time to see the Beverley Minster. You can take a guided tour to learn more about its history; they also hold fabulous charitable events throughout the year, especially around Christmas time.
What makes Beverley different from other towns?
Beverley, in my eyes, is most definitely on the map, I always refer to it as a little York. It has history and is absolutely stunning. It also has amazing coffee shops and restaurants, the night life is great, and there is a fantastic high street. Beverley simply has everything you need for the perfect day out, or weekend away.
Where would you recommend for shopping?
Beverley has two main shopping areas – both definitely worth a visit, as they are very different. You have the Saturday market and Toll Gavel shopping area, in the town centre, which offers a bespoke luxury shopping experience, including the new The White Company store. There is also Flemingate, a much more modern development near the Beverley Minster, which offers alternative high-street shopping.
What do you love about Spring in Beverley?
I love the Westwood in Spring. It is full of bluebells and gets the nickname “bluebell woods” during the season. Amazingly natural and unspoiled, it should be on your to-do list if you’re visiting in Spring.
Where is the best place to go for brunch?
We have a couple of hidden gems in Beverley. Istanbul Restaurant is amazing. The service is out of this world and the food is just fantastic. Central 42, which boasts a central location and, although only small, offers great service and fantastic tapas.
What are your favourite pieces from our Spring collection?
It’s so hard to choose a favourite because I love everything, but I think one of them would be our Wild Mint fragrance collection. I cannot get enough of it. The candle looks amazing as it comes in a ceramic pot.
