Discover Pocklington

This classic English market town is located at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds, 15 miles from the city of York. Pocklington has an array of shops, places to visit and stay and lovely eateries, all surrounded by glorious countryside.

A star attraction of Pocklington is Burnby Hall Gardens which is home to a National Collection of Hardy Water Lilies - the biggest such collection to be found in a natural setting in Europe.

For golf fans, views across the Yorkshire Wolds provide a striking backdrop to The KP Golf Club's 18-hole championship course. 

Other highlights include the 9.5-mile Pocklington Canal, a hidden gem and wildlife haven, and Pocklington Arts Centre which is an award-winning multi-arts venue with a diverse programme of events.
