Return of the Walk East Yorkshire Festival

Great News! The Walk East Yorkshire Festival returns with loads of events taking place from 11th to 19th September

Join us in September to celebrate the ‘Great Outdoors’ with a packed
programme of activities over nine days, appealing to families, casual walkers and
outdoor enthusiasts.
The festival shines a spotlight on the wonderful landscape of the Yorkshire
Wolds, with its rolling hills and wide open spaces to the rugged shores of the
heritage coastline.
Popular events include history tours of our market towns and stately homes;
long-distance treks; Nordic walking, canal boat rides; horse riding; cycling; wildlife
experiences; vineyard and brewery visits; wild foraging and outdoor yoga!
Stay for the week and experience all East Yorkshire has to offer. Choose from a rustic
rural retreat; a boutique hotel in a historic market town or glamping in the grounds
of a stately home. Whatever type of accommodation makes a holiday special,
you’ll find it here in beautiful East Yorkshire.

We have two great events we are organising for the Festival, the Walking & Wine event at Little Wold Vineyard, South Cave and the Boots and Beer Walk at Wold Top Brewery
