landscaped gardens at Hornsea seafront



The main attraction here, for us, is definitely the seaside - the beach and seafront...

  • Hornsea has an incredibly long seafront - with a smart promenade all the way along the sea front.
  • We love walking here on a wintery Sunday afternoon, when the tide is high, and watching the winter waves smash against the strong sea-wall - of course, it's always amusing when someone gets splashed - even if it happens to be us!
  • There's lots of places to sit and relax along the seafront - so, in the Summer, we often do just that - and usually with a tasty portion of fish and chips as well..!
  • There are newly landscaped gardens along most of the seafront, which are very pleasant to stroll in, have some interesting information boards, and (perhaps more importantly!) can be a sheltered place out of the wind.

  • The beach here is just as long as the seafront - when the tide is out it gets to be quite a wide beach, as well as long. It is lovely and flat, partly pebbled and partly sandy, with beautiful, old, weather-worn, breakwater groynes all the way along.


  • Hornsea beach



  • There is a high sea-wall, with access steps down, so it is a very safe place for us to let our greyhound off the lead.
  • Dogs are banned from the central section of the beach only, during the Summer months. Dogs are currently allowed on the north and south sections of the beach all year around (and along the seafront itself). Check the signs when you arrive for more information.

  • We usually park in the car park near the Leisure Centre, where we often enjoy a fish and chip meal, to eat-in or take-away, at Sullivans. This is right by the sea-front, and amenities such as snack-bars and public toilets.
  • There are also car parks at the north end of the seafront, off Eastgate, at the market and at the south end of the sea front, at the boat yard, just before you come to the Caravan Parks.
  • Where to Eat Along the Seafront

We always love a stroll along the beach or sea front at Hornsea, so hope you will enjoy your days out or longer holidays in this lovely little town...
