Places to visit in East Riding of Yorkshire

When you visit East Riding of Yorkshire, you can look forward to national trails through gentle escarpments, while surrounded by lush open farmland and estuaries lined with forts and suspension bridges. This beautiful East Yorkshire county is a favourite among walkers, who go long distance on the 79-mile (127km) Yorkshire Wolds Way. Look out for boxing hares, swooping barn owls and rare butterflies; visit medieval market towns like bustling Beverley; head to Bridlington to stroll on the sand; or follow Philip Larkin's verse to Kingston-Upon-Hull with its vast aquarium, eclectic museum quarter and marina – you’ll never be short of things to do in East Riding of Yorkshire.
