About the East Riding

East Yorkshire has something to offer everyone. A place where your family can go walking in the Wolds one weekend and be on the beach the next. A place that is UK City of Culture 2017 and where you can afford to choose between a beamed cottage in a picturesque village or a large family home overlooking the Humber Estuary.

As a region, the area is progressive, seeing billions of pounds worth of private sector investment across multiple thriving industries - leading to a diverse array of immediate career opportunities. Public sector improvements such as multi-million pound leisure and cultural facilities, retail and historical realm works are also being made across all four local authorities - enhancing the area’s vibrancy and solidifying its legacy for future generations to come.

Towns & villages

Each of our market towns has its own distinct character; combining essential facilities with a warm, welcoming feel whilst still being within easy commute time of Hull, Grimsby, Scunthorpe, York, Lincoln and Leeds, making them extremely popular.

Coast & Countryside

The Yorkshire countryside is famous for its beauty and the rich diversity of landscapes. What really sets this area apart is its great connectivity; you can have a rural home with stunning views of the Yorkshire Wolds, whilst being just a stone’s throw away from the coast,


There aren’t many places in the world where you can wake up in a countryside village, have lunch in the city and then take a stroll along the stunning coastline - here you can. Host to the UK City of Culture 2017.
