Driffield - Capital of the Wolds

Driffield is 13 miles from Bridlington.

Known as the Capital of the Wolds, Driffield is a thriving market town and annually holds one of the finest one day agricultural shows in Britain.

As well as a weekly markets along the main street, held every Thursday there is an award winning farmers market held at the Driffield Showground on the first Saturday morning of the month which is always well worth a visit in order to sample some of the finest local produce.

Driffield`s canal is a popular location, there are some wonderful walks providing an abundance of natural beauty and wildlife.

Driffield hosts a wide range of local, regional and national events and exhibitions throughout the year at the local showground, these include The Yorkshire Trucking Spectacular held in May, The Yorkshire Motoring Festival and The Famous Driffield Agricultural Show held in July each year attracting many thousands of visitors making it one of the largest shows to take place in Britain.

Near to Driffield are two of East Yorkshire's finest large country houses, Burton Agnes Hall and Sledmere house, both are family owned but open to the public. Burton Agnes Hall is a magnificent Elizabethan house filled with treasures and is found on the A614 road from York to Bridlington. Sledmere House is situated in the small village of Sledmere, is just over 7 miles from Driffield. The House has many interesting features, including the Turkish Room, a 100ft long library and gardens by Capability Brown. On a summers day both have lovely gardens to take a picnic.

During the summer Driffield also hosts a Festival Week which includes a colourful parade through the streets of decorated floats. Another great procession to enjoy is that provided by the Annual Traction Rally which tours through the town centre with a display of vintage and beautifully restored vehicles.

Whether taking time out to spend the day in Driffield or just passing through on the way to York or Beverley, it's well worth taking the time to sample some of its many charms.
