The sweeping East Coast

The East Riding of Yorkshire is a sweeping area of diverse landscape and wonderful scenery with vibrant towns and sleepy picturesque villages. Stretching south eastwards from the Vale of York the southern borders are at the Humber Estuary and marked by the imposing Humber Bridge.

To the eastern side is an area of undulating fields and sandy beaches which edge towards the North Sea. Between the two there is the Yorkshire Wolds, a vast area of chalk lands mainly used for agriculture and the area of Holderness which also borders the North Sea.

There are no industrial areas in the East Riding of Yorkshire, with history dating back to the ice age the land has always been used for farming and agriculture. Several coastal towns are

There are numerous sites of historical interest to visit, Skipsea Castle, Burton Agnes Manor House, Sewerby Hall and Fort Paull to name but a few.
