Nice country walk to an interesting historical village. Parking was free and there is no charge for visiting this lovely English Heritage site. Great way to spend an hour or 2

Managed to spend an hour drive from Hull to visit here tonight and instead the angry farmer that lives next door decided to come out and scare us off by shooting his shot gun in the air for some unknown reason. Sad thing is I...More

A lovely walk down through the valley of about 3/4 mile, over a rough grassy path. We loved the walk to the village but it's not for buggies or people who may struggle with uneven ground. There are several information boards outlining interesting facts and...More

To be honest, I wasn't really too sure what to expect, but it wasn't this. Wharram Percy had been on our 'to do' list for a while. I was a bit disappointed. There is not a huge amount there: the ruined church was quite interesting...More

We visited here on the way back from Helmsley having seen the signs a few times. It is a little bit down a country road and there is a car park for 10-15 cars and then a 20 minute walk to the site through a...More

I can’t think of anywhere else like this. I’m not aware of other deserted villages on this scale. It’s a big site and it’s a bit of a walk to get to it but it’s interesting and plenty to see if you use your imagination....More

Stumbled across this deserted Medieval Village by accident, saw the signposts whilst in the area, so gave it a go. About a three quarter of a mile walk from the car park, but well worth it. Numerous information boards to keep you up to speed...More

Walked here along the old railway line from North Grimston. A place which is isolated and very quiet. Only saw a handful of people all day. Site had information boards which give detailed information.

Now, to reach the village requires a rather long walk down a track, across a field, and over another field. When I visited in the middle of the 2018 heatwave this was easily accessible, but should you visit in winter good footwear would be essential....More

Hi we took our dog but she's a young girl. It's about three quarters of a mile down hill, not much to see once there,but the church is lovely. There's benches to rest. It's the walk back up that's quite steep. I'd say allow... More
