Here’s what’s happening on our doorstep this June here at Heron Lakes

June already! How the year is flying! Now the sun has shown its face, Here’s what’s happening on our doorstep this June here at Heron Lakes!

With so much happening this summer, there is a lot to choose from. Here at Coastline Leisure we have put together a little guide of what to do this June in the home of our Park, Heron Lakes.

Wanting to stay away from the coast? East Yorkshire has so much to offer. Try the beautiful and historic village of Beverley only 10 minutes away. Another option not much further, only 11 miles from Heron Lakes is the City of Culture, Hull.

A great experience for art, food and culture alike.

Feeling Hungry?

From street food to specialist markets have something for every taste.

Zebedee’s Yard street food night is a must for the foodies out there. Classic burgers, Greek food, Vietnamese food and more are

all found in the one location with live music by local bands and bars of all types thrown in. Held on the 7th of June from 4pm. Its a great way to end a day exploring the city.

To do your part for Local business’s on your visit. Humber bridge farmers market and Beverley’s historic Saturday market are a must visit. Both markets offer a great selection of local produce including fruit, vegetables and a wide range of local meat as well as amazing vendors from Indian Food to coffee to pork pies and pastry goods. I would recommend the Curries they areparticularly tasty!

These two markets wouldn’t be complete with just produce, no they go one further by having a great mix of local businesses selling items such as honey, flowers, vintage and everything in between. A great way to stock up on ingredients for the week a head or even to grab something for a relaxing morning brunch in the sun.

Beverley market is held every Saturday 8pm till 4pm and the Humber Bridge Farmers Market will be the 3rd of June 9am till 1pm.

Buying a local piece of art or a souvenir?

Beverley and Hull are great for market showcasing Local arts and craft. With the City of Culture came a flourish of art and local talent as artist, crafters and makers being given funding to start up business there is so much choice. From Prints to Ceramics to fabric crafts.

In Beverley on the 2nd of June you will find a craft and artisan market at the Flemingate centre. For the Hull area, Humber street Market is brilliant for unique items. Full of artisanal stalls from soaps and candles, Prints, paper craft and more. Alongside the usual Vintage, record and a selection of craft beers and street food. Third Sunday of every month, 17th June.
