Dog walks

Yorkshire’s got as much to offer canine visitors as human. In fact, we like to call it Dog’s Own County. Let your four-legged friend lead the way on a walk across countryside, fields, forest or beautiful quiet coastline.

Coastal walks

The views along the Yorkshire Coastline can take your breath away. Whether you're up high or down on the beach, you'll find the perfect backdrop for a day's walking. Here's some of our top suggestions of where to walk, from Ravenscar to Old Saltburn, why not walk them all?

Aerial views

Yorkshire and the North East boast breath-taking countryside and expansive views. There’s nothing quite like the view you get from the top. Whether a hill, a lighthouse or a sand dune, it’s that moment when you stop and the panorama of landscape unfolds before your eyes. Find some great views on a walk this autumn
