Yorkshire Wolds & East Yorkshire

Discover Hockney’s favorite part of Yorkshire…

See the landscapes that have inspired David Hockney, 80% of the works on display in his 2012 Royal Academy exhibition were of the Yorkshire Wolds, he has a home in Bridlington and can sometimes be seen painting “en plein air” around the Yorkshire Wolds.

The Yorkshire Wolds is a lovely rural area with undulating hills and valleys, picturesque villages and lovely market towns. The Wolds run in a broad arc from the Humber, past Beverley and on up to the sea just north of Bridlington. Here the hills meet the sea and create the spectacular Flamborough Head famed for it seabird colonies (including puffins) and rock pools that will entertain the whole family. Try the Bell Inn at Driffield for lunch or drop into Beverley with it’s rich history, lovely restaurants, impressive Minster and twice weekly markets. The Wolds is a great area to explore with scenic drives, wonderful cycle routes and excellent walking including the Wolds Way.

The East Yorkshire coast runs from the cliffs of Flamborough in the North down to Spurn Head in the South, lovely beaches and a haven for wildlife in fact the whole area of East Yorkshire is known as the Yorkshire Wildlife Triangle it is so rich in wildlife and reserves.

Add to all this the 2017 City of Culture Hull with its galleries, museums, theatres, shopping and waterfront, East Yorkshire offers a break that will cater for all tastes.
