The old market town of Howden is dominated by its minster, which leads to a beautifully preserved Georgian town centre with narrow cobbled streets and restored buildings.
Walk through Howden`s narrow streets to admire its fine Georgian architecture, as well as some attractive shops, historic coaching inns and charming tea rooms, and a small market which takes place each Friday.
Just outside Howden, at Breighton Aerodrome is the Real Aeroplane Museum, which tells the history of flight through the work of Yorkshire`s many aviation pioneers such as Shute, and has a collection of over 40 flying machines. Visit on one of the summer Fly-in days when visiting aircraft triple the number of planes that can be seen there.
On the outskirts of town Howden Marsh is a lovely place for a quiet stroll, with a lake and small islands which have become a habitat for birds and wildlife.
