The Best Places to Stay in the UK

East Yorkshire

East Yorkshire – to be fair – probably hasn't been on everyone's radar in the past as a visitor destination, but that's surely set to change as Hull takes its place as the UK's 'City of Culture' in 2017. In fact, the historic city on the Humber estuary has always had plenty to shout about – great museums, fantastic pubs and a burgeoning foodie scene. It's also been home, variously, to Phillip Larkin, William Wilberforce, aviator Amy Johnson, the Housemartins and and 'Spider from Mars' guitarist Mick Ronson. No wonder Hull City fans are currently chanting 'You're only here for the culture' at visiting opposition fans. Even older than Hull is beautiful Beverley, with a Minster to match that of York, while beyond lie the rolling Yorkshire Wolds, an almost impossibly pretty ensemble of historic manor houses, ancient villages, chalk hills and verdant hidden valleys. The Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail links another East Yorkshire icon – the Humber Bridge – with the seaside at Filey, and the coast itself makes another compelling case for a visit – bucket and spade antics at cheery Bridlington, puffins on the cliffs at Bempton, and the eerie, almost other-worldly Spurn peninsula. Culture? You betcha.
