Want to stay inside a real piece of history? With more medieval charm than Game of Thrones, YHA Beverley Friary boasts decades of loving restoration and a £340,000 refurbishment. This fascinating hostel was home to Dominican friars 600 years ago and was even mentioned in the Canterbury Tales. Book a stay and get original features by your bunk, a buzzing market town of attractions, and all the facilities you need for a break in the Yorkshire hills.

Nestled in the heart of the beautiful East Yorkshire market town of Beverley, this Youth Hostel is a truly fabulous retreat just a short distance away. Not only can you enjoy the charm of Beverley town centre, but you will be only a short drive from the impressive Yorkshire coastline, Hull’s world famous aquarium and the expansive beautiful rolling countryside. 

YHA Beverley Friary is situated a stone's throw away from the new Flemingate Shopping Centre - just cross the footbridge near the hostel entrance and you'll be in the midst of shopping heaven. With high street favourites and department stores plus several eateries and coffee shops, you could easily spend hours here before returning to the comfort of the hostel.

FREE WI-FI is available in communal areas for guests!

The length (in miles) of a walk is an approximation of the overall of the walking guide, not a measure of the distance "as the crow flies" between any two points. This is based on the GPX file that was created when the author walked the route and rounded to the nearest mile.length

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult it is to walk. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 walking boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles or other obstacles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. Do be aware that the level of stamina required will vary and you should only walk within your limits - the indication of walk length will help with this. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles.

Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.
