Beverley Minster is helping hard-pressed families enjoy Bank Holiday Monday by letting children climb their towers for free.
The magnificent 50 metre (165 feet) tall north tower is only open to visitors for one day a year and, this year, accompanied kids under 16 can climb to the top for free during any of the guided tours through the day.
The 208 steps lead to unrivalled views of East Yorkshire (weather permitting) and are a must-see for keen photographers in particular.
The tour also takes in views of the magnificent Victorian clock mechanism that keeps time and has chimed the bells in the Minster for over 110 years.
The first guided tour starts at 10.00 am then, subject to demand and weather, further tours take place at 10.40, 11.20, noon, 12.40 – then 2pm, 2.40, 3.20 and 4pm.
Prices £10 per adult, accompanied children free – prices include photo permits.
The family-friendly pricing also applies to the normal tours in the central tower, which include demonstrations of Beverley Minster’s famous 18th century tread wheel crane.
These guided tours cost £5 per adult, accompanied children free (normally half price) and take place at 11.15am and 2.15pm – other times may also be available depending on demand.
Refreshments will be available throughout the day.
