Yorkshire Life Luncheon - Whitley Hall Hotel

Yorkshire Life Luncheon - Whitley Hall Hotel, Grenoside, Sheffield

Some venues are steeped in history while others have every modern convenience. Some are nestled in rural seclusion while others are within a heartbeat of the city. And some offer simple bar fare while others present diners with top-of-the-range a la carte cuisine. Not content with simply being some or other venue, Whitley Hall Hotel ticks each and every one of these boxes and more – even the one that specifies ‘growing family of resident peacocks’.

Walks

Hard to get lost

Yorkshire Wolds Walk - Market Weighton

Some will tell you the Wolds can never match the striking landscapes in Yorkshire’s three national parks but that is to miss the point, as this delightful circuit proves.

Plus on this walk there are characters galore, including a giant, a king and a rather disgruntled duke.
