Family Days Out in East Yorkshire

Half term is right around the corner, and with many local attractions now open, there are a multitude of activities available for you and your family to enjoy. Here at Peter Ward Homes, we have compiled a list of our top days out in the East Yorkshire area. Enjoy.

The Deep

Hull’s award-winning aquarium is home to over 5,000 animals, such as sharks, rays, penguins, turtles, and many more. Learn about prehistoric seas and tropical lagoons, and take a journey through the viewing tunnel or glass lift to get up close and personal with the residents of The Deep.

Sewerby Hall and Gardens

This Georgian-era house is Grade I listed and furnished with several impressive pieces of furniture from London’s Victoria and Albert Museum. The house is set within 50 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, and features a zoo and aviary to keep the whole family entertained.


With its wide range of shops and restaurants, Flemingate is the perfect place for a family day out. Visit big name stores and independent boutiques, eat a delicious meal, or watch a film in the luxurious six-screen Parkway Cinema and Theatre Beverley. All within walking distance of the stunning Beverley Minster.

Humber Bridge Country Park

The Humber Bridge Country Park is a 48-acre park featuring open fields and ponds full of local wildlife. There are three different length trails to choose from, and a bird feeding station in the centre of the park. Take your time admiring the chalk cliff faces that surround the park or seeing how many different types of butterflies you can spot. There are 22 recorded species.

Bridlington Beach

Bridlington’s clean beaches, independent shops, and characterful Old Town are only some of the most exciting features of the seaside town. Take a boat trip around the bay, bird watch at Bempton Cliffs, or simply get an ice cream and soak up the sunshine on the sand.

Honeysuckle Farm

Hornsea’s Honeysuckle Farm is the perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with a wide variety of animals such as horses, cows, pigs and sheep, as well as smaller animals like guinea pigs and rabbits. Take a ride on a cart pulled by a Shire horse, chat to the farmers, and sample ice cream made right on the premises using milk from their very own cows.

East Park

East Park is Hull’s largest park, and was opened in 1887 to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee. A vibrant green space, the park features 130 acres of parkland, a cafe, and a large children’s playground featuring modern play equipment. There is also an Animal Education Centre onsite that hosts a variety of domestic, farm and exotic animals.
