Rolling hills, high cliffs, and traditional seaside

Flamborough HeadThe rolling landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds chalky uplands ends at the high cliffs of Flamborough Head. South of Flamborough lie the resorts of Bridlington, Hornsea and Withernsea with their sandy beaches and fishing traditions.

The long coastline with its seabird colonies extends to the continually shifting exposed landscape of Spurn Head at the mouth of the Humber estuary. The wide river then leads past the city of Hull and under the Humber Bridge to the port of Goole.

Yorkshire Wolds ViewInland from the Humber the coastal plains of Holderness give way to the Vale of York, with the Wolds uplands as backdrop. One of Yorkshire's great long distance walks, the Yorkshire Wolds Way is a National Trail running 79 miles from Hessle to Filey through landscape that inspired David Hockney.

You will find pretty villages and unspoilt market towns such as Beverley, Driffield, Howden, Market Weighton and Pocklington.

Castle HowardCastle Howard is one of Britain’s finest stately homes. Famous as the setting for the TV adaptation of Bridehead Revisited, the grand house and gardens are open to the public. Ancient churches include the landmark of Beverley Minster, Howden Minster and the massive Patrington church. Visitors are welcome at historic houses such as Burton Agnes, Burton Constable and Sledmere, and gardens at Burnby and Sewerby.

location of Hockney's 'Roads and Cornfields'David Hockney has created a number of his paintings in different seasons around the East Yorkshire countryside. There is now an Art Trail in the Yorkshire Wolds, following the locations of Hockney's paintings and taking in Bridlington, Kilham, Sledmere, Langtoft and Warter.

The flowering lanes and unspoilt villages of the Yorkshire Wolds and Howardian Hills are quiet corners of deepest rural England.

On the Humber estuary is maritime Hull, with its long deep-sea fishing tradition and now a leading port and gateway to Europe. Further inland is the port of Goole, whilst the natural beauties of Spurn Head shelter the estuary from the open North Sea.
