Register Square, Beverley, HU17 9XX
Located on Register Square in Beverley, the Guildhall is a Grade 1 listed structure with a long and varied history. It is a civic building and was purchased by the Beverley town keepers in 1501. The Guildhall has a stunning Georgian courtroom featuring plaster stuccowork by Giuseppe Cortese. The courtroom also still retains evidence of the building’s roots as a medieval great hall. On the first floor is a Magistrate's room and the Mayor's parlor, both containing historic furniture and paintings.
Today the Guildhall is run as a historic building and community museum but is still used for ceremonial civic occasions. The community museum shows temporary exhibitions on Beverley's local history and displays items from the Guildhall’s museum collection. There is also a computer archive of historic photographs of Beverley.
