Cherry Burton is a village and civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. It is situated approximately north west of the market town of Beverley and lies to the west of the B1248 road.

The civil parish is formed by the village of Cherry Burton and the hamlets of Gardham and High Gardham. According to the 2011 UK census, Cherry Burton parish had a population of 1392, a reduction on the 2001 UK census figure of 1473.

From 1894 until 1974 Cherry Burton was located in the Beverley Rural District. It was also the local ecclesiastical parish in the wapentake of Harthill.

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.
