Holderness was a local government district and borough in northern England, named for the Holderness peninsula.

It was formed on April 1, 1974 along with the non-metropolitan county of Humberside in which it was situated. It was formed from part of the administrative county of Yorkshire, East Riding, namely:

*The municipal borough of Hedon,
*The urban districts of Hornsea and Withernsea,
*The Holderness Rural District.

On April 1, 1996, Humberside and the borough were abolished, and it became part of the new unitary East Riding of Yorkshire.
