The seaside town of Hornsea is perfect for a family day out, with a lovely sandy beach, a busy promenade
to stroll along, amusements and plenty of attractions for all the family. The town has retained a pleasant village atmosphere
and people come from miles around to visit. It also has a colourful history of smuggling, a trade which was aided and abetted
by the entire town, even the local church, whose vault was used to stash contraband. These days shopping has taken over from
smuggling as one of Hornsea`s favourite pastimes.
At the north end of the promenade, Hornsea's Floral Hall stages
festivals, concerts, plays and dances throughout the year. Hornsea Freeport Shopping Village offers everything from big name
fashion brands to kitchenware and china at shoestring prices - all in beautiful landscaped surroundings and a charming village
The award-winning Hornsea Folk Museum is housed within a historic farmhouse
in the town centre, with a Victorian farm kitchen, dairy, blacksmith`s shop and large gardens. Pottery, spinning and lace-making
demonstrations take place regularly.
Just outside the town centre at Honeysuckle Farm children have great fun helping
to feed the sheep, horses and a host of other farm animals.
