Hornsea, Seaside Towns and Yorkshire Attractions
There is so many options for fantastic family days out on the Yorkshire Coast and where better to start with Hornsea, just a few minutes walk from Lowcroft Caravan Park!
Hornsea is a picture postcard Victorian seaside resort. The large promenade that stretches the length of the blue flag beach is the focus of the town and there you will find a large selection shops, souvenirs, cafés and amusements to while away the hours, whilst you’re not sun bathing on the beach that is! Move slightly inland and you will find Yorkshire’s largest freshwater lake which is home to over 250 species of birds. Why not try your hand at a spot of fishing, sailing or just spend some time with the kids feeding the many ducks and swans!
