Brantingham is a village and civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is situated about 2 miles (3.2 km) north of Brough, and 12 miles (19 km) west of Kingston upon Hull. It lies to the north of the A63 road. According to the 2011 UK census, Brantingham parish had a population of 370, a decrease on the 2001 UK census figure of 410.

From 1894 until 1974 Brantingham was located in the Beverley Rural District. It was also the local ecclesiastical parish in the two wapentakes of Harthill and Howdenshire.

In 1974 most of what had been the East Riding of Yorkshire was joined with the northern part of Lincolnshire to became a new English county named Humberside. The urban and rural districts of the former counties were abolished and Humberside was divided into non-metropolitan districts. The new organization did not meet with the pleasure of the local citizenry and Humberside was wound up in 1996. The area north of the River Humber was separated into two "unitary authorities"—Kingston-upon-Hull covering the former City of Hull and its closest environs, and the less urban section which, once again, named itself the East Riding of Yorkshire.
