Known as the "port in green fields", because of its inland location, Goole is a sleepy working port with a rich maritime heritage. Once a hub for the region's coal industry
Elegant Bridlington, with its peaceful promenades, sandy beaches and historic harbour offers a bright and breezy day out. The historic old town is filled with quaint shops, restaurants and cafés.
The real star of the 2016 Dad's Army film, Bridlington Old Town is a charming pocket of Yorkshire - full, on the one hand of fascinating architecture and cultural history and other the other with new, modern shops and stylish galleries. It is well worth taking the time to visit.
the place that has it all
From the cosmopolitan 2017 UK City of Culture Hull to the undulating hills and valleys of the Yorkshire Wolds, East Yorkshire is wonderfully eclectic. At its heart lies a serene landscape of swirling grasslands, medieval towns, manor houses and Bronze Age ruins that remains refreshingly unchanged. Yet travel further North and the vibrant energy and heritage of the Humber rushes to greet you.
Life in the Wolds is luxuriously slow. From the unhurried Elizabethan elegance of Burton Agnes and Burton Constable, to the simple pleasures of historic Howden, Hedon and Pocklington, this relaxing region makes it easy to unwind. Potter in the pretty Gothic streets of Beverley, listen to authentic chamber music or discover the 13th Century Minster at your leisure. Or take in Driffield, and the peaceful riverhead. Wherever you stay in the Yorkshire Wolds, the pressures of modern life will quickly drift away.
