When thinking of Northern England, connotations of beautiful countryside, quiet villages and peaceful retreats come to mind – and Humberside holidays are no exception. Covering the regions of Kingston Upon Hull, East Riding, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire, a visit to Humberside promises plenty of beautiful scenery. Hull is particularly well-known for its beauty, able to boast of an ample supply of parks and green spaces. Hull's East and Pearson Parks are both Grade II listed sites by English Heritage, with the latter encompassing a lake and Victorian Conservatory housing birds and reptiles.
Situated a little closer to the sea, East Riding contains plenty of seaside locations for you to chill back and take in the view whilst enjoying the sea breeze. Scarborough in particular is a hugely popular seaside town. One of the largest settlements and holiday resorts in North Yorkshire, its rocky headland, limestone cliffs and extensive sands have seen it nicknamed "the Brighton of the North".
During Humberside holidays, thrill-seekers will want to make a visit to Pleasure Island. Found in Cleethorpes, the family friendly theme park is popular amongst tourists thanks to its range of white knuckle rides, family shows and child-friendly activities. With rides including Shrieksville – a ghost train – and Tommy Tinkaboo's 'Sweet Adventure' Water Ride – a water ride in a sweet factory – Pleasure Land is a must visit attraction for holiday goers of any age.
In Thornton Curtis you'll run into the majestic ruins of Thornton Abbey. Still incredibly well-preserved, the above-ground remains date back to the 13-14th centuries and are built in the Early Gothic style. Of particular note is the gatehouse which is one of the earliest examples of brick on a large scale in England. The front is also adorned with nearly life size statues of biblical figures which stand over the rest of the elaborately decorated abbey. With so much on offer for all the family, you can't pass up the chance to plan holidays in Humberside. Arrange your flights using the 'Book Now' tool on this page.
