The East Riding of Yorkshire is arguably one of England's most beautiful counties - and one of its best-kept secrets. It is a landscape of diversity and contrasts with wide-open plains, rolling hills and wild and rugged coastlines combining to create an enviable living environment.
Quality of life in the East Riding is exceptionally high - housing is plentiful and prices are lower than many other parts of the country, yet the region can offer superb urban, rural and coastal locations. Most of our schools perform well above the national SAT and GCSE standards. Because of our commitment to rural schools, we can ensure that education is both accessible and local. Also, we have two universities on our doorstep - Hull and York.
Despite its beautiful rural location, the East Riding is connected to the UK motorway network by the M62 and to Europe by North Sea Ferries and Humberside Airport. Major cities such as Hull, York and Leeds are within easy reach, as is the beautiful historic town of Beverley. The seaside resorts of Bridlington, Hornsea and Withernsea and the natural beauty spots of the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors are also right on our doorstep. The area boasts a racecourse at Beverley, as well as the country's oldest horse race - the Kiplingcotes Derby at South Dalton, and historic sites such as the Beverley Minster and beautiful beaches.
We're sure that if you choose to work and live in the East Riding, your stay will be a happy one!
