County flag of East Riding of YorkshireThe East Riding of Yorkshire has an economy dominated by farming and tourism, with popular attractions including the counties many historic buildings, the hills of the Yorkshire Wolds and coastal resorts such as Bridlington. The county town is the market town of Beverley, which holds regular markets each Wednesday and Saturday as well as a variety of cultural events, promoting arts and crafts such as music, literature and puppetry. During Medieval times Beverley supplied wool to customers as far away as textile producers on the continent and the town is the location of the oldest state school in England, Beverley Grammar School, which dates back to around the year 700 AD. Though a parish church, Beverley Minster is larger than many cathedrals and the church attracts thousands of people each year, whether to attend services or appreciate the Gothic architecture, stained glass windows and stone carvings, including more than seventy of musical instruments from the medieval period.

The Elizabethan stately home of Burton Agnes Hall is decorated with finely carved interiors and furnished with beautiful paintings and tapestries that are centuries old. Along with more contemporary works of art they were collected by successive generations of the family that have lived in the house for over four hundred years. Another popular tourist destination is Sewerby Hall, a Georgian country house which is now run by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council and is also home to the Museum of East Yorkshire. Additions to Sewerby Hall mean that today there are rooms from the Georgian, Regency and Victorian periods and the house serves as a venue for a range of cultural events and activities, including concerts and exhibitions of local arts and crafts. Within the grounds of the house, visitors can stroll through beautiful gardens and woodlands. Other attractions in the East Riding of Yorkshire include Hull New Theatre, Hornsea Museum, Sledmere House and Hull and East Riding Museum, which houses exhibits ranging from dinosaur bones to artefacts from the Bronze Age, Roman and medieval periods to Victorian times.
