Countryside and Walks

Enjoying our region's beautiful countryside is easy by bus. Our Go Anywhere tickets allow you to hop on and off the bus as many times as you want, and by not using a car you're helping to keep our rural roads free of cars.

There are lots of events throughout the year to give people an opportunity to enjoy the countryside. Whatever your interest is in the countryside there will be something for you, for children, families, old and young. See the latest programme of East Riding events, where trained countryside staff will help you have an enjoyable visit.

The area is also fantastic for walking, with hundreds of places to visit just a bus ride away. East Riding Council’s Walking The Riding website gives you loads of ideas for routes, whether you’re an experienced walker, or just fancy a Sunday stroll. There are 300 walks on there, so there’s bound to be one you haven’t tried yet!

We're also lucky enough to have the Yorkshire Wolds Way close by. There is something truly special about walking on the Yorkshire Wolds Way. It is one of our National Trails, which means it goes through some superb bits of countryside. You can get to many of these points by bus and take a stroll in the peace and quiet of the Yorkshire Wolds. The full route is 79 miles long and all along the way there are circular walks both short and long to enjoy. The signposting is great too. You still need a map, but it is hard to get lost! For the full flavour of the Yorkshire Wolds Way take a look at You could also try one of the Yorkshire Wolds Way's Top Ten Experiences. These are walks that will give ten of the very best experiences along the Yorkshire Wolds Way.

We've got some services that are especially good for walking.

Service 128 goes from Scarborough to Helmsley via some stunning countryside. Visit the lovely villages of Hutton Buscel, Thornton Dale or Kirkbymoorside, or set off from walks from Pickering or Helmsley.

Our summer Moors Explorer bus is designed especially for walkers. Running every Sunday through the summer, catch the bus from Hull, Cottingham and Beverley up to the Moors. You can also access the Wolds Way by getting off the bus at Wharram Le Street. If you'd like some ideas for walks planned especially around the Moors Explorer journeys, see the Dales Trails website.
