The Yorkshire Wolds Way is a 79 mile (127 km) walking route in the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, which curves from Hessle outside Hull through the Wolds to Filey.

It is one of the lesser-known trails in Yorkshire and the shortest National Trail.

This route is ideal for anyone looking to break into long distance, multi-day walking because the route is well-waymarked across a terrain that consists mainly of gently rolling hills, broad farmland, and forest tracks.

Especially the stretch around Thixendale is extremely attractive.

The snug location of Thixendale village makes it one of the most charming along the Yorkshire Wolds Way and there is accommodation, a shop, and a pub.

No time to hike the trail? Try a circular walk around Thixendale just to experience the Yorkshire Wolds Way.
