the Yorkshire Wolds

The Yorkshire Wolds are a series of gently undulating hills and valleys south of the North York Moors and east of the Vale of York which stretch in a broad arc from the city of Hull and the market town of Beverley to the coastal resorts of Filey and Bridlington on the Yorkshire Coast.

The geology of the wolds is predominantly of chalk, giving rise to a landscape and countryside which is highly reminiscent of the downs of southern England. The hills meet the sea at the headland at Flamborough and the dramatic sea cliffs of Bempton Cliffs.

The Wolds Way long distance footpath and the Way of the Roses cycle route pass through the Yorkhire Wolds.
