Visit Pocklington – The gateway to the Yorkshire Wolds

Nestled in the spectacular Yorkshire Wolds, Pocklington, a historic market town, makes a delightful destination for visitors  all tastes and interests.

Peace and tranquillity can be found in the renowned gardens at Burnby Hall while those seeking more thrilling pastimes can participate in a wide range of exciting and unusual sporting activities.

Walkers are spoilt for choice: The Wilberforce Way, The Wolds Way and The Minster Way are just a few of the walks that encompass some of the truly breathtaking scenery the Yorkshire Wolds have to offer. Cyclists too will find many enjoyable routes.

The Pocklington Arts Centre plays host to an array of talented artists, actors, comedians and musicians and those who enjoy shopping as a form of entertainment will delight in a town of charming, independent shops and boutiques.

In addition to this, Pocklington’s town crier, one of only 200 town criers in the UK, proclaims at all major events in the town calendar.

Anyone with a passing curiosity in history will find much of interest as Pocklington has been a continuous settlement for thousands of years. Our beautiful church dates back to before the 15th century and the illustrious Pocklington School has produced luminaries such as William Wilberforce, the slave abolitionist who began his anti-slavery campaign whilst boarding here.
