Visitors Flock to Flemingate / November, 2016

Flemingate, Beverley, has welcomed more than 1.5 million visitors since opening last November. The £120m retail and leisure destination masterplanned by The Harris Partnership set a new record in the week of its first anniversary as more than 40,000 people flocked to the centre with numbers expected to continue to climb in the run up to Christmas.

One of just 4 new town centre developments to open in the UK in 2016, Flemingate has attracted a raft of grad A retail and leisure brands and is credited with having had a transformational impact on the local economy over the past 12 months.

Sally Iggulden, chair of the Destination Beverley partnership said Flemingate had made the town a much more attractive visitor destination. “Flemingate has bedded itself into the fabric of Beverley and has become an important and must-visit part of the town,”

“The mix of retail and lifestyle outlets at Flemingate is increasing all the time and bringing new and bigger brands into the town can only be a good thing.”
