 Walking East Yorkshire Festival 2023.

7th February 2023

Celebrate the ‘Great Outdoors’ with a packed programme of activities at the annual Walking East Yorkshire Festival on Saturday 9 – Friday 22 September 2023. 

Whether a walker, cyclist, horse rider, nature lover or history enthusiast, the festival showcases a plethora of activities over nine days which appeal to families, casual walkers and outdoor enthusiasts alike.

The festival shines a spotlight not only on the rolling landscape, curvy roads and stick trees which inspired one of Britain’s most iconic artists David Hockney to paint his colourful tribute to the Yorkshire Wolds, but also our rich heritage coastline with chalk cliffs and an abundance of wildlife. The flat plains of Holderness with its big skies make it ideal for cycling along quiet country roads, disused railway lines or even a jaunt to the tip of Spurn Point’s peninsula.

Popular year-on-year events include history tours of our pretty market towns, long-distance treks, Nordic walking, canal boat rides, horse riding, wildlife experiences, seabird cruises, vineyard tours, brewery visits, ghost walks, lighthouse tours, outdoor pursuits including kayaking, bodyboarding and wild swimming.
