There is nothing better than a good pint after a trek around some beautiful scenery, and God’s Own Country has both of them in abundance. We thought we’d pick some of our favourite places to visit, and, more importantly a pub to visit afterwards as the reward. These are our favourite Pub Walks Yorkshire has to offer, we hope you find it helpful whilst you’re enjoying all the beauty that Yorkshire has to offer this year.
1. Flamborough Head
There is nothing more beautiful than the East Yorkshire coastline, although we may be a little biased. Flamborough has some spectacular scenery to enjoy, that’s for sure. If you start off at the lighthouse, you can take in the famous drinking dinosaur before heading down to south landing beach and Danes Dyke.
Afterwards, head into Flamborough to the Rose & Crown for a swift half or something a little stronger and some traditional pub grub.
One of our favourite places to visit, this pub walk is a crowd-pleaser for sure. There are three amazing points of interest on this popular walk which are: Janet’s Foss waterfall, Gordale Scar waterfall, and, of course, the famous Malham Cove – that featured in the Harry Potter series.
The walk is around 4-miles, after which you’ll be ready for a drink (or two). Our favourite places for a beer in Malham are either Lister Arms or Beck Hall.
Grassington in the Yorkshire Dales is a popular choice for tourists – especially since the remake of the popular TV series ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ hit our screens. Starting in the Grassington National Park Centre, you’ll head down to Linton Falls and then follow the River Wharfe, passing through meadows, woodlands back to the visitors centre.
Head up into the village centre afterwards and try out our favourite little pub, The Devonshire. You won’t find many Pub Walks Yorkshire has that beat this.
4. Robin Hood’s Bay
Robin Hood’s Bay is a picturesque place to visit for the day or even stay over. You can enjoy a walk from Robin Hood’s Bay to Boggle Hole starting at Bay’s station car park. This walk offers beautiful cliff views, amazing shots of the coastline. It’s a shorter one at 2 miles, so quite good if you’re more interested in the pint after.
Our favourite pub to visit is there Smugglers, which has amazing food on offer also!
5. Aysgarth Falls
One of Yorkshire’s most popular water spots, Aysgarth Falls is a trio of small waterfalls on the River Ure. Easily accessible from the village of Aysgarth, you’ll likely have seen this pretty little spot on Instagram before – with many flocking to see it every single year.
After you’ve enjoyed all that this trio of waterfalls has to offer, head back into Aysgarth and try out the George & Dragon Inn. This is one of our favourite Pub Walks Yorkshire has to offer.
6. Settle Caves & Waterfall
Close to Settle this walk starts at the station in Settle and passes through woodland, then past breathtaking falls and interesting caves such as Victoria Cave. You can head back into the village afterwards and enjoy a few bevvies in one of its local village pubs.
