6. East Riding of Yorkshire
The East Riding of Yorkshire consists of a low crescent of chalk hills, the Yorkshire Wolds, surrounded by fertile plains. The Wolds themselves offer miles of walking and cycling through attractive landscapes, while those in search of more urban delights should pay a visit to the market town of Beverley, with its awe-inspiring Minster and popular racecourse.
On the southern border, close to Hull, the Humber Bridge was the world’s longest suspension bridge when it was opened in 1981. It has since slipped to eighth place, but remains the longest that can be crossed on foot or by bicycle – if you’re planning to test it out, take a snack and drink to keep you going!
