Original bar

This is the only bar left of the original seven bars connecting the protective wall around Beverley in days of yore! Well worth seeing, such a lot of history in those bricks!

There were supposedly seven bars that protected the town of Beverley but this is the only remaining structure left, there were special designed buses that could travel under the bar.

Situated just off the Market Place, the North Bar is the only remaining bar or gate into the historic town of Beverley. Well worth a visit if you are in town.

Although this place is of some historical interest, there is not much to see and it is not much more than a traffic through fare. I suggest you include it in a walking tour of Beverley for other purposes - there is a very pleasant little park nearby (Coronation Gardens) which merits your time more - but don't make a... More

As a resident of Beverley I feel someone should add a touch of realism to some of the comments. It is striking and unusual. Agreed. However it is a traffic light set at one end of a shopping street. There are loads of reasons to visit Beverley but there is literally five seconds of information to read.

This rare brick gatehouse has survived from the 15th century when it formed part of the town walls. It is still worth the short walk past St Mary's church to admire its quirky but attractive architecture. Whilst in this part of the town, admire the lovely Georgian terrace next to it on North Bar Within, and the very unusual black-and-white... More

I work on the north bar and its such a pretty part of Beverley! Always busy . There is plenty of parking but often the parking is full due to business but there is alway people coming and going so a space can be found if you hang around a while. Beautiful area .
