Things to Do
Aldbrough Street Map

Aldbrough village is surrounded by open fields, and there are many lovely walks in and around the area. Our coastline boasts over 40 miles of sandy beaches and although sometimes it may be difficult to get on to the beach at Aldbrough, nearby Mappleton beach is easily accessible, and perfect for an early morning walk.

Our local beaches are also ideal for fishing, in addition to the sea there are fishing lakes situated in the village and fishing can be arranged with the owners. Hornsea Mere offers fishing and boating.

In addition to our own beaches, and the Herons around the fishing lakes, 7 miles north of Aldbrough is Hornsea Mere, the largest freshwater lake in Yorkshire and R.S.P.B Nature reserve. North of Aldbrough, approximately 25 miles is Flamborough Head, providing a haven for thousands of seabirds and trips to the Puffin colonies at the respective times of year. The adventurous will also want to discover the unique Spurn Point, east of Aldbrough.

Burton Constable Hall stands just outside of Aldbrough, it is an outstanding Elizabethan country house, currently undergoing much renovation, the gardens are lovely. Burton Constable has a touring caravan park within the grounds.
