The East Yorkshire Borough of Beverley was a local government district and borough of Humberside, England, from 1974 to 1996.

It was formed on 1 April 1974, by the merger of the previous borough of Beverley, with Beverley Rural District and Haltemprice Urban District.[1] Initially named Beverley, the name was formally changed by the council to East Yorkshire Borough of Beverley in 1981.[4]

On 1 April 1996, Humberside was abolished along with the borough, and the area become part of a unitary East Riding of Yorkshire.
