Grab your walking boots and head outdoors for these big views and appetite-whetting hikes
Kilnsey Crag, Upper Wharfedale
If you like your walks to have a bit of drama then Kilnsey Crag is out to impress with its fearsome overhang on the limestone cliff. Watch thrill-seeking rock climbers (kudos if you’re one yourself) from the comfort of your hiking boots and just immerse yourself in the best of nature’s craggy wonders.
Head to: The crag is just outside of Kilnsey village in Upper Wharfedale. Yorkshiredales.com
Flamborough lighthouse, East Yorkshire
If you’re prepared to get up early then you might be rewarded with a stunning wintry sunrise by the coast. There are few things as feel-good as coastal paths where you’re right in the thick of the elements and the sea, sky and land are your only companions. This route was voted 50th in a 2017 ITV poll to find Britain’s Favourite Walk.
Head to: You can from the car park at the RSPB’s Bempton Cliffs to Flamborough. Theoutdoorguide.co.uk
Ingleton waterfalls, Yorkshire Dales
Pack a flask and your picnic and head for a wild and wonderful waterside walk. Few things are as feel-good as a whooshing waterfall and these reveal nature at its breath-taking best. Ingleton is about 25 miles away from Skipton and well sign-posted from the main A65 Skipton road, and also easily accessible from Leeds. From November last entry is 2.30pm.

Humber Bridge, Hessle
Big spaces, waterscapes and a very striking structure. When the Humber Bridge was built in 1981 it was the longest single-span suspension bridge in the world and it is still the UK’s longest. Now you can take in the views on the footpath or along the water at Hessle for grand views as you go. Head to: Humber Bridge Information Centre is situated in a large free car park next to the Humber Bridge Country Park nature reserve and with easy access to the Yorkshire Wolds Way and Trans Pennine Trail. eastriding.gov.uk
