Enjoy history, horse racing and handcrafted souvenirs  

If you are seeking an eclectic break away, then you’ve come to the right place.  Where else could you explore the rich history of a medieval Minster, wander down historic cobbled streets, visit art galleries, shop in an array of boutique stores and then be able to choose between a gourmet dinner, an exciting race meet or a night at the theatre? You can when you visit East Yorkshire.


Discover the art of being outdoors

Take your time here, explore the region and you will discover the unique light and landscapes that have inspired artists for centuries, including world renowned painter David Hockney, who has spent much of his life painting the beautiful woodlands and vistas of East Yorkshire. When you visit, you can learn to paint, learn to cook, or simply learn to relax and enjoy the trees and dappled sunshine that inspired him and so many others.


Go wild on two wheels, or on two feet

East Yorkshire’s coastline spans from the towering chalk cliffs of Bempton, home to over half a million seabirds that nest there, to the sand spit of Spurn point where you can cycle, or walk, almost all of it. From challenging routes to explore with friends to a gentle seafront cycle with the family or a scenic pub to pub stroll with some gentle inclines thrown in, East Yorkshire is a perfect place to explore on bike or on foot.


From coast to countryside and inviting market towns, explore all that East Yorkshire…
