East Riding of Yorkshire is a real surprise with its cosmopolitan city and then the miles and miles of countryside and breathtaking coast with all those beaches!

There's a lot on offer here besides the beach which makes it an ideal spot for family and couples holidays. It doesn't matter what you've got in mind - a night on the town, ambling around a castle or stately home, climbing a cliff face, sailing, flying a kite or just losing yourself for a while, East Yorkshire has it all and - there's no air travel involved!

There are five top holiday resorts in the area all with Blue Flag beaches - Hornsea, Whitby, Withernsea and Scarborough North. But you don't need to stick to blue flag beaches as those around Bridlington and Flamborough are beautiful. Eating out is a treat as the busy seafood markets offer you a broad selection of ocean delicacies.

Find yourself in Yorkshire this year but be sure to book your accommodation well in advance!
