Howden is a market and minster town in the East Riding of Yorkshire. It lies in the Vale of York to the north of the M62.
Howden’s architecture is chiefly from the Georgian and Victorian eras, most of the town centre exclusively being built in this period. Most of Howden’s pubs were built during this time, and it is said that, at one point, there were more pubs in Howden per square half-mile than anywhere else in the country.
Advertised times may be subject to change at short notice.
Town-Live events are generally 7:00-9:00pm & 7:30-9:30 during the summer.
Ticket cancellations are non refundable.
