The collections

The Beverley Guildhall specialises in collecting:
  • Objects relating to the social history of the Beverley area;

  • Photographs of people and places in and around Beverley;

  • Oral reminiscences relating to Beverley’s history. 

The Guildhall collection also includes civic regalia, furniture, documents and civic gifts relating to the various local authorities, past and present, which are now encompassed by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

All the objects in the Guildhall collection, together with the other museum collections, can be searched by going to East Riding Treasures Online.

The Museums Service has a Collections Development policy relating to acquisition and disposal of objects in the collections, which can be accessed by going to museum standards.

Anybody wishing to loan or donate items to the Guildhall should bring them to the museum on a Wednesday or Friday, or complete the museum loan/deposit/bequest form (opens in new window).
