Walk in the Wolds

With its award winning walks, softly undulating chalk uplands, secret valleys and time forgotten villages, the Yorkshire Wolds is one of the UK's rambling hot spots. It's also one of those serene destinations where you can wander all day if you fancy without meeting a soul (apart from the occasional sheep). The Yorkshire Wolds is footpath heaven. Cross-hatched with routes, there's a walk to suit ramblers of every persuasion. And whether you opt for a challenging twenty-miler or a leisurely afternoon stroll, you can be sure of returning with a smile on your face.

Skidby Windmill

Yorkshire's last working windmill, a four-sailed tower mill built in 1821 by Norman and Smithson of Hull. The adjacent warehouses form the Museum of East Riding Rural Life, with displays illustrating the agricultural and rural history of the area, and including a range of simple child-friendly interactive exhibits. Children's trails and information sheets are available free from the mill reception, and there are hand-held information sheets in both galleries and in the mill tower.
