Picturesque Hornsea on the Yorkshire East Riding Coast
Between the sun rising out of the North Sea and setting spectacularly over the Mere lies the picturesque town of Hornsea. Offering all the pleasures of a traditional seaside resort whilst providing a convenient base for touring the Historic East Riding.

At the eastern edge of the town lies the sea, with over a mile of promenade and fine sandy beaches. To the north of the promenade is the Floral Hall, an entertainment centre which stages festivals, pantomimes, musicals, plays, concerts and dances throughout the year. The south end of the promenade features an array of seaside amusement arcades with novelty machines and children's rides.
The Admiralty guest house sits in a prime location on the Hornsea promenade, enjoying unrestricted panoramic views of the East Yorkshire coast line and North Sea.

The shopping centre is in the main thoroughfare of Newbegin, and is well worth a visit. In this busy shopping area one passes a number of very old buildings and cottages dating back 300 years. One of these, originally a farm house, is now the Hornsea Folk Museum. The farmhouse kitchen, living room, bedroom and dairy are displayed as they were 100 years ago. Farrier, pottery, spinning and lace making demonstrations are also held in the museum which is open from Easter to November.

To the west of the Market Place is Hornsea Mere, Yorkshire's largest freshwater lake covering 324 acres. You can enjoy rowing, sailing, fishing, motor boat trips and pitch and putt while bird watchers will be fascinated by the many species of birds that frequent this RSPB nature reserve.

Situated nearby is Hornsea Golf Club. Described as "The most prestigious golf club in the East Riding of Yorkshire" an 18 hole, 6,685 yard course. It is open 7 days a week and has an excellent clubhouse and professional shop.
The Historic East Riding
You have probably heard of Beverley Minster, Flamborough Head, the Yorkshire Wolds and the Humber Bridge. But what about the Land of Green Ginger, Britain's largest standing stone, Europe's largest collection of waterlilies or even the oddest place in England?

Happily for those who are in on East Yorkshire's secrets, this is a corner of England still relatively undiscovered. The landscape is unlike anywhere else in Britain and truly a walker's paradise. Rich and fertile farmland swells gently from the flat meadows of Holderness, gently rising and rolling over the chalky uplands of the Yorkshire Wolds, to end at the great chalk cliffs of Flamborough Head, plunging down into the North Sea. Within all this you will find picture-postcard villages, stunning churches, stately homes with magnificent gardens, a city resplendent in maritime heritage, a medieval town as musical today as it was 500 years ago, plenty of pubs as yet untouched by the dreaded theme teams, prizewinning Yorkshire puddings and England's last word in fish restaurants.
The Admiralty guest house sits in a prime location on the Hornsea promenade, enjoying unrestricted panoramic views of the East Yorkshire coast line and North Sea. Sometimes known as little Denmark, many towns and villages reflect this area's Danish and Flemish connections in appearance and in name, such as Lund, Skidby and Wetwang. There is an eeriness to the ever-changing, eroding Heritage Coast. A land and seascape of high cliffs, golden sands, smuggler's caves, harbors, lighthouses, unique plant life and thousands upon thousands of seabirds protected by miles of RSPB reserves
