We found this place by accident, passing nearby and happening to spot it on the road atlas. A 3/4 mile walk from the car park, down in to the valley, takes you to the village. The remains are mostly fairly subtle, but interpretation boards help...More

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

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.

About 1km from the carpark, a bit rough in places (don't take the baby buggy) you come to the rather intriguing remains of the village. Its pleasant and pretty, just beware of the low flying jet planes!! A good place to take the dog for...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
