Walk the Wolds 
The landscape around Driffield is heaven for walkers: the gentle rolling hills of the Wolds provide mile upon mile of rural pathways winding their way past pretty villages (with plenty of country pubs and tea rooms along the way for refreshments!). 


Driffield town itself also provides plenty of opportunities for shorter walks, taking in the historic landmarks, the three becks (streams), and the pretty canal. A copy of the Driffield Historic Town Walk can be downloaded here and is also available in full commentary format here. 


The Wolds Way is a beautiful 80 mile long footpath, stretching from Hessle on the banks of the Humber to Filey on the coast. The popular route passes through scenic grassy valleys and woodlands rich with wildlife, past ancient market towns and villages such as Market Weighton, Fridaythorpe, and Wintringham. 


Walkers will find Driffield to be an excellent base from which to explore this lovely area – there is a great selection of places to stay in and around the town, including pet-friendly accommodation for walkers with dogs (plus dog-friendly places to eat and drink). 
East Riding of Yorkshire Council has produced several excellent walking guides covering Driffield and the Wolds, detailed in the Driffield Town Trail
