The Yorkshire Wolds lie to the east of God’s Own County and are often overshadowed by the Yorkshire Dales or Moors.
Indeed The Yorkshire Wolds Way is, arguably, one of the least well known National Walking Trails in Britain. It is 79 miles – or one week – of tranquil, isolated villages in the midst of beautiful Yorkshire countryside.
The trail starts at its most southern point in Hessle, at the foot of the Humber Bridge, heads north and then ends in the seaside town of Filey. Whether you decide to walk the Way, or just visit the villages on the trail, you can be sure that the Wolds will leave a life-long impression. Here are the top 10 places to visit..
This village, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, is at the start of the National Walking Trail. The trail starts from the bank of the Humber estuary before progressing into the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds.
Welton offers great views of the famous Humber Bridge – which was once the longest single-span suspension bridge when it was built in 1981 – at one mile long. Once you’ve taken some photos of the bridge, you can then head off for a nice, refreshing glass of wine at a nearby winery. The village is very well known for its wine tasting, as there are several Yorkshire vineyards in the area – yum.
