Stay in East Yorkshire

Rich History and Stunning Wildlife

The story of the rich historical past of East Yorkshire is told at the numerous stately homes centralised by Beverley Minster, whilst an array of unrivalled wildlife encounters are now putting the area on the nature-lovers’ map too.

Beverley Minster has invited pilgrims for many centuries and is a wonderful example of medieval gothic architecture.

Whether cycling or strolling from village pubs or taking a more strenuous hike across the dramatic landscapes, East Yorkshire offers a paradise of views, hidden trails and delightful countryside all year round.

At the heart of Yorkshire’s so-called Nature Triangle, 250,000 seabirds including puffins and gannets delight at Bempton and Flamborough Cliffs, and Yorkshire’s very own ‘land’s end’ of Spurn Point remains an iconic wilderness-like landscape with its newly renovated lighthouse and decades of bird migration research.

The area also boasts England’s best whale watching opportunities every autumn, or head inland where red kites, otters and exquisite avocets might top your list.

For the golfer there are championship golf courses to whet the appetite. Other areas of interest include the spectacular Humber Bridge, the ocean discovery of The Deep in Hull and Fort Paull, a military Napoleonic Fort with a labyrinth of tunnels.

Burnby Hall is home to the largest collection of water lilies in Europe.

Honeysuckle Farm near Hornsea is home to a large collection of animals with a new cafe and shop as well as a completely new milking area making it much easier to view the demonstrations that take place at 1.30pm daily, as well as lots of new baby animals all waiting to meet you.

Hull, East Yorkshire's only City, is 2017 UK City of Culture and well worth a visit.
