In 1846 the York & North Midland Railway Co. was granted permission to build a line from Beverley to Hornsea, and in 1861 Joseph Armytage Wade promoted the building of a line from Hornsea to Hull and the Hull & Hornsea Railway Co. was formed. The line opened in 1864 with a station near the sea and another at Hornsea Bridge at the junction of Southgate and Rolston Road. After little or no financial success the company merged with North Eastern Railway in 1866. The terminus at the seafront closed in 1964 and Hornsea Bridge Station the following year. Hornsea Bridge Station has been demolished and the seafront terminus converted into housing.

The path of the railway now forms the Hornsea Rail Trail and the eastern stretch of the Trans Pennine Trail. The Trans Pennine Trail runs for 215 miles from Hornsea to Southport and was officially opened in September 2001.
