Hunmanby - Out & About

Hunmanby Methodist Church (Courtesy of Colin Hinson)Hunmanby lies directly between Scarborough and Bridlington on the A165 looking down on the popular sea side resort of Filey.  The Village is surrounded by stunning scenery and beautiful landscapes and has always proved popular with visitors.  Hunmanby is an ideal base for your visit to the Yorkshire Coast and is a gateway to the Yorkshire Wolds.

 

Once listed as the largest village in Great Britain, today the village still boasts its historic Market Place cross, signifying the village's once substantial importance in Yorkshire trade.

 

A selection of public houses, café’s and restaurants lining the main street ensure guests to the village are always well fed and a small selection of quaint shopping outlets are available to entertain throughout the day.

 

For those feeling a little more energetic, why not pay a visit to Hunmanby’s Sport and Leisure Hall. Attractions including, tennis, parkland walks, golf, bowls, indoor tennis, fitness gym, basket ball, badminton and 5-a-side football are all on offer to help work off those robust Yorkshire dinners.

 

For historians, overlooking the village lies Hunmanby Castle, a Norman earthwork motte and bailey fortress, founded by Gilbert de Gant. Destroyed in the 12th century, the large bailey platform now only survives.

 

Numerous venues in Hunmanby hold an annual Hunmanby Heritage Day every year in early September, as part of the National Heritage Open Days scheme. As well as holding annual Heritage Days, the Hunmanby Gateway Project have recently produced a web-friendly Hunmanby Heritage Trail Leaflet (PDF) featuring a map of both short and extended trails around Hunmanby (PDF) for visitors to enjoy.


Hunmanby is well served by public transport allowing visitors to use the village as a base for exploring the area on foot or bicycle.  The railway station lies on the Yorkshire Coast line between Scarborough and Hull and there is also a regular bus service through this village, bus number 121.
