Holderness was a rural district in the East Riding of Yorkshire from 1935 to 1974. It covered the southern part of the East Riding's North Sea coast.[1]

It was created by a County Review Order made under the Local Government Act 1929 by the merger of Patrington Rural District, most of Skirlaugh Rural District and part of Sculcoates Rural District.[1]

It survived until 1974, when, under the Local Government Act 1972 it was abolished,[1] and became part of the larger Holderness borough in Humberside. Since 1996 it has formed part of a unitary East Riding.
