Things to Do in Hornsea:

Hornsea is a quiet beach resort with a distinctive traditional seaside feel, the town centre is quaint and charming, with a good mix of creative, independent shops, bars, cafes and restaurants (try our favourite Bemora for Asian/fusion lunches and sweet bakes too).

Our favourite fish & chip shop, (and officially the UK’s BEST CHIPPY 2023) Whiteheads, is also here, near the south end of the seafront. If you fancy your hand at fossil finding, the sands to the south are amongst some of the best places in the UK to do this.

Hornsea Mere is the largest freshwater lake in Yorkshire. A site of scientific special interest, it is a popular spot for bird watchers and home to many species of birds and waterfowl.  You can hire a boat or for those who prefer to stay on dry land, there is an 18 hole putting green or treat yourself in The Mere Café and The Summerhouse Gift Shop.

Hornsea Leisure Centre is the closest public swimming pool and is a really lovely pool.

Honeysuckle Farm is just on the outskirts of Hornsea, a very cute little petting zoo.

Mr Moos is the famous local Ice Cream Parlour and not to be missed, it’s on the road North of Hornsea towards Skipsea and Bridlington.
