The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Things to do

The historic East Riding of Yorkshire has always faced several ways – inland to the rolling Wolds and over to nearby York, north up the coast to Bridlington and beyond, and out from the once great maritime port of Hull to Europe and the world. As a consequence, the attractions are many and varied – far more than you might at first imagine from a relatively small region, which itself is only a part of Yorkshire. Hull's cultural offer is pretty fantastic, from the iconic dockside aquarium, The Deep, to a selection of fascinating museums and buildings in the old town that cover everything from the abolition of slavery to the history of transport. Perhaps the single best-known regional attraction is Beverley Minster, a beautiful church with a powerful place in East Yorkshire's history. This has always been a wealthy region, and some of the great country houses and estates – now open to the public – cast a light on bygone times, such as Elizabethan Burton Agnes. Meanwhile, the coast is its own reward, from Bridlington's beaches to the puffins at Bempton.
