The Yorkshire Wolds are a tranquil corner of England that has remained largely unchanged for centuries. It is a landscape of softly rounded chalk hills, secluded dry valleys, rolling fields of crops dotted with bright red poppies, green pastures echoing to the cries of sheep and lambs, flower-filled hedgerows, wooded dells and sleepy little villages with welcoming old pubs. The Yorkshire Wolds Way meanders along the entire length of the Wolds, from Hessle Haven on the banks of the Humber to the quaint seaside resort of Filey on the North Sea coast.

Highlights of the trail include the sweeping views south across the Humber to the towers of Lincoln Cathedral, west across the Vale of York towards the Yorkshire Dales and north across the Vale of Pickering to the North York Moors; the sense of solitude and tranquillity; the abundant wildflowers, butterflies and birds; England's most famous deserted medieval village at Wharram Percy; the charming villages of Welton, Brantingham, Goodmanham, Londesborough, Huggate and Thixendale; the inn where the long arm of the law finally caught up with the legendary highwayman Dick Turpin in 1739; and the dramatic outcrop of Filey Brigg.

Holiday Highlights

  • Walking over the tranquil Yorkshire landscape from the foot of the Humber Bridge to the crumbling cliffs of Filey.
  • Experiencing the peace and tranquillity over stunning countryside and through idyllic villages.
  • Visiting typical Yorkshire pubs for a well-earned taste of Yorkshire ale, including the Wold Top Brewery, located on the trail near Hunmanby.
  • Catching a glimpse of the looming North York Moors over the Vale of Pickering.
