Walkington is a village and civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is situated approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) to the south west of the town of Beverley on the B1230 road.
The civil parish is formed by the village of Walkington and the hamlet of Broadgate.
The village is the former home of a mental asylum, named Broadgate Hospital, built on the grounds of a Broadgate Farm, and opened in 1871. The hospital closed in 1989 to make way for private housing developments, which is known as "Broadgates" by locals. Broadgate Farm which is located between the village of Walkington and the Broadgates housing estate has now been developed into a complex of holiday cottages named Broadgate Farm Cottages.
