Known as the "port in green fields", because of its inland location, Goole is a sleepy working port with a rich maritime heritage. Once a hub for the region's coal industry
the place that has it all
From the cosmopolitan city of Hull to the undulating hills and valleys of the Yorkshire Wolds, East Yorkshire is wonderfully eclectic. At its heart lies a serene landscape of swirling grasslands, mediaeval towns, manor houses and Bronze Age ruins that remains refreshingly unchanged. Yet travel further North and the vibrant energy and heritage of the Humber rushes to greet you.
Life in the Wolds is luxuriously slow. From the unhurried Elizabethan elegance of Burton Agnes and Burton Constable, to the simple pleasures of historic Howden, Hedon and Pocklington, this relaxing region makes it easy to unwind. Potter in the pretty Gothic streets of Beverley, listen to authentic chamber music or discover the 13th Century Minster at your leisure. Or take in Driffield, and the peaceful riverhead. Wherever you stay in the Yorkshire Wolds, the pressures of modern life will quickly drift away.
