The local area guide to living in East Riding of Yorkshire

The East Riding of Yorkshire, or East Yorkshire, is a rural area that is full of natural beauty. From the quiet towns paved with cobbled streets and rich history, to the beautiful coastal towns, it encapsulates traditional English charm.

The boundaries stretch from Hull in the south to Filey in the north, encompassing towns such as Goole, Flamborough and Bridlington. At the heart of the area are the stunning Yorkshire Wolds, which display beautiful, rolling hills. This abundance of countryside makes agriculture and tourism the two biggest industries in the area, and the largest contributors to the local economy.

Information about the local residents

Much of the small population of the East Riding of Yorkshire is gathered in the towns of Bridlington and Beverley, as well as urban areas such as Cottingham and Hessle. The average age of the county is higher than that of the national average, and there’s little crime and unemployment in the area.

The county is also, on average, fairly prosperous and conservative leaning, and there are many opportunities for temporary employment throughout the summer, when work in agriculture and tourism peaks.

Nearby schools

Educational standards have remained consistent in East Yorkshire over recent years, with results still placing above the national average. Pupils have a wide range of options for both primary and secondary education, with a number of popular schools in the area, and both state and independent institutions available.

All in all, there are over 130 primary schools in the region, as well as over a dozen secondary schools. Beverley Grammar School can also be found in the area, and it’s famed for being the oldest continuously running state school in all of England.

One of the most respected primary level schools in the East Riding of Yorkshire area is Molescroft Primary School. There are currently 427 pupils enrolled at the school, all of which are between the ages of 4 and 11. When it comes to student achievement, the school performs at a level above the national average. Around 87% of pupils achieve Level 4 or above in reading, writing and maths by the age of 11, as opposed to 80% nationwide. When the school was last visited by Ofsted, the educational standards authority awarded the school an impressive rating of ‘Outstanding’, a grade that is sure to please parents who are considering sending their children to the school.

The University of Hull is also in the region, and has undergone a rapid series of expansions over the past few decades.

Getting around

Because of the limited public transport links in the area, the county of East Riding of Yorkshire has above-average car ownership rates. The easiest routes in and out of the area are the M62 to the east, and the M18 to the south.

There are a few public transport options, including various bus routes across the county and railway stations that run from the major towns on the Yorkshire Coast Line. The main route runs from Hull to Scarborough, calling at Bridlington and Beverley.

Local shops

The towns in the East Riding of Yorkshire area cater to a variety of tastes and lifestyles, with options ranging from seaside towns to quaint village areas, where country pubs and historical churches are the norm.

Hornsea and Bridlington offer the classic seaside attractions, with traditional entertainment such as donkey rides on the beach, crazy golf and afternoon tea serving as family-friendly favourites. On the other side, Beverley is one of many towns that host a Saturday market to complement the local antiques and independent shops. It is also home to Beverley Racecourse, where the yearly Ladies’ Day event takes place, and the Folk Festival.

Outside the towns and cities, there are plenty of charms to be found in the classic English countryside. Nestled among the natural beauty of the Yorkshire Wolds are smaller market towns such as Driffield, Hedon, Howden and Pocklington, and ramblers might happen upon the stunning Hockney Trail – a series of vibrant artistic pieces created by local artist David Hockney.
