The Borough of East Yorkshire was one of nine local government district of the county of Humberside, Englandmarker from April 1, 1974 to April 1, 1996.

The district was created as North Wolds, but was renamed by resolution of the council on February 1, 1981 (the Borough of Beverleymarker was renamed to include 'East Yorkshire' in its name the same year). The council had made an earlier attempt, before it formally came into existence, to be named "Bridlington and Yorkshire Wolds".

The district was formed under the Local Government Act 1972 by the amalgamation of a number of areas formerly in the administrative county of Yorkshire, East Riding, namely: the municipal borough of Bridlingtonmarker, Driffieldmarker urban district, Driffield Rural Districtmarker, Pocklington Rural Districtmarker and most of Bridlington Rural Districtmarker.

The district was abolished in 1996 and merged into the new East Riding of Yorkshire local government district, which covers a much larger area.
