The Yorkshire Wolds remain relatively unknown compared with the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales. The Wolds mainly covers the sparsley populated area of low hills in the East Yorkshire area (east of York). It is an area steeped in history with great archaeological significance.
As well as the stunning coastal area running down from Flamborough Head, to Horsea, Aldbrough and Easington, there are the inland market towns of Beverley, Market Weighton, Pocklington and Driffield. In terms of attractions, Bempton Cliffs is an RSPB Nature Reserve and Seabird Colony, perfect for those with an interest in bird-watching. In addition, Sledmere House is a popular Stately Home and Beverley Minster is a real find for such a small town. The Wolds Way is a stunning National Trail showing off the very best of the area.
