East Riding of Yorkshire Area Guide

The East Riding of Yorkshire is largely rural, with its boundaries only just excluding Hull to the South and Filey to the North. However the area does encompass a collection of quiet towns including Beverley, Bridlington and Goole.

Running through the area are the gorgeous Yorkshire Wolds, which mostly comprise gentle, rolling chalk hills in contrast to the starker landscape of the Yorkshire Moors. The local economy still heavily relies on agriculture and tourism (having been pretty much left alone by the industrial revolution) which distinguishes it from more heavily developed areas to the South and West.

While not as famous as the Yorkshire Moors or Dales, the East Riding of Yorkshire has plenty of charm. Coastal towns such as Bridlington, Flamborough and Hornsea feature beautiful, clean beaches, and county capital Beverley is known for its mediaeval minster, cobbled streets and race course.

Demographics

The area is relatively sparsely populated, with most of the population congregating either in Bridlington and Beverley or the southern towns such as Cottingham and Hessle which are part of the Hull urban area. The population skews older than the population at large, with a notable shortage of young people. The area is relatively prosperous and conservative, with low levels of crime and unemployment, particularly in the summer months when temporary work can be found in agriculture and in the tourism industry.

Education

There are a number of primary and secondary schools throughout the area. Educational standards are generally above the UK average although not by a huge margin. East Yorkshire has slipped in the national rankings in recent years, but mostly due to other areas improving rather than standards falling.

Transport

The East Riding isn't overly blessed with transport infrastructure. Car ownership is above the national average here and most people get around by road. There are railway stations at the major towns such as Bridlington and Beverley running regular services on the Yorkshire Coast Line that travels between Hull and Scarborough.

Travel down to London and out to the rest of the UK is served by the M62 and the M18, which travel to the east and down to the south respectively. There are also a number of bus links throughout the area.

Amenities and Shopping

The several small, scattered towns of the East Riding provide a varying level of amenities. Beverley is what might be termed 'quaint', and is known for its Saturday market and antiques and craft shops. Beverley Race Course is a major local attraction with an annual Ladies Day - one of the most important dates in the East Riding calendar. Music lovers will also appreciate the many music festivals that take place in Beverley, including the Beverley Folk Festival.

Seaside towns such as Bridlington and Hornsea offer traditional seaside fare, with Bridington in particular aiming for the kitsch, seaside holidays of old with donkey rides along the beach, a zoo, crazy golf and tearooms.

One of East Ridings' crowning glories is its countryside. The Yorkshire Wolds are dotted with beautiful market towns such as Howden, Hedon, Pocklington and Driffield, which are known for their pubs, churches and country houses. The area was recently immortalised by local boy David Hockney, who painted the area in beautiful glowing colours.
