Finding Burton Constable

Burton Constable is situated in Holderness in East Yorkshire, 10 miles north east of Hull and 15 miles east of Beverley.
By Car & Motorbike

The route to the Hall is clearly marked by Historic House signs. From Beverley (15 miles) take A1035 Bridlington road, turn right at White Cross roundabout then follow A165 towards Hull (10 miles). From Hull (10 miles) follow A1033 towards Hedon, turn left at Saltend roundabout and then follow signs to Preston and Sproatley.

Motorbikes - as the main entrance is via a gravel road, motorcyclists may prefer to access the car park via the tarmac drive to the south of the main drive that is signposted to the Estate Offices.

Public Transport

By Train - our nearest train station is Hull Paragon Interchange. From here, Burton Constable is approximately a 10 mile/25 minute taxi journey. 

By Bus - Our nearest bus stop is located on Balk Lane, Sproatley. East Yorkshire Motor Service 277 departs regularly from stand 34 in Hull Paragon Interchange. From the bus Burton Constable is approximately a 2 mile walk. We recommend the safest route is via the Burton Constable Holiday Park, which is clearly signposted from the village. Walk through the holiday park and cross the lakes via Capability Brown's Bridge.


Burton Constable is located only a few short miles from Route 65 of the Trans Pennine Trail - a flat scenic trail that is great for families.

To plan your journey by bicycle/foot we recommend using Sustrans
