Get around[edit]


  • Hornsea is a quiet seaside town with a recently rebuilt seafront promenade. The seafront area has just a pub/restaurant and two cafes.


  • Hornsea Mere, the largest freshwater lake in East Yorkshire. There are regular boat trips out on to the mere in summer (weather permitting). There is also a cafe, a small craft shop and a small family golf course. Bird feed can be purchased in the cafe so you can feed the ravenously hungry ducks, geese and swans that inhabit the lake.
  • Hornsea Museum: a small museum set within ancient cottages that tells the story of Hornsea and the area beyond.
  • The sandy beach is an excellent place to relax in summer.


  • Hornsea Freeport A Shopping Outlet Village on the southern edge of the town. Shops include Regatta, Tog24, Clarks, The Works etc. There is an indoor play barn for children.


Hornsea has a plethora of excellent fish and chip shops, such as Sullivan's (on the seafront) and Whitehead's (hidden away in the houses behind the boatyard). Both are award-winning and have indoor seating areas.
