Pocklington's pride and joy is Burnby Hall Gardens, home of Europe's largest water lily collection in two acres of lakes, with over 5,000 flowering plants. The collection was left to the people of Pocklington by Percy Marlborough Stewart of Burnby Hall, along with his collection of illustrations and objects from around the world, which is also on display.
Pocklington itself is well worth exploring, with many attractive buildings characterised by red pantile roofs, unusual street names and twisting alleys surrounding the market place.

One of a group of Pocklington's most historic buildings, Oak House is now a lively arts centre which also houses Pocklington Museum.

There are lovely walks along Pocklington Canal and in nearby Millington Wood, one of the few remaining wooded dales in the Wolds and a popular local beauty spot and a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Goole, town (parish), unitary authority of East Riding of Yorkshire, historic county of Yorkshire, northern England. Situated at the confluence of the Rivers Don and Ouse, it is the most westerly port of the Humber estuary and the eastern terminus of the Aire and Calder navigation system.
Although Goole is in the present unitary authority of East Riding of Yorkshire, it is part of the West Riding division of the historic county.

The port, shipping, and transport are major sources of employment. Other industries include food processing and the manufacture of fertilizers. Pop. (2001) 17,600; (2011) 19,518.
One of Lincolnshire’s larger market towns, located in West Lindsey, and home to one of the best-preserved manor houses in Britain, Gainsborough Old Hall, Heritage Centre and Trinity Arts Centre.
Just a 30-minute drive from Lincoln on the westerly edge of Lincolnshire, bordered by the River Trent, lies the market town of Gainsborough. The town boasts a fantastic medieval manor house, Gainsborough Old Hall, a must-see for lovers of historic buildings.
The Domesday Book, created in 1086, revealed that at that time Lincolnshire was England’s most populous county because of Gainsborough. Its rich history since has included royal visits, hosted by Lord Burgh at Gainsborough Old Hall.
The town’s history dates back as far as Ancient British and Viking times, and its importance during the Industrial Revolution is explained by fascinating exhibitions at Gainsborough Heritage Centre. Gainsborough was a busy inland port with warehousing, breweries and large engineering firms.
You can also find arts and entertainment at Trinity Arts Centre, the town’s unique theatre and picture house, located in a Grade II Listed church, which was built in 1841- 1843.
Gainsborough has a long-standing history of industry; the town was the manufacturing base of Marshall, Sons & Co.— a major boiler manufacturer founded by William Marshall in 1848. The site, now known as Marshall’s Yard, is home to thirty-five stores including; an Italian restaurant, coffee shops, health club and landscaped plaza.
Thriving markets are held in the town centre and there is an award winning shopping centre, Marshall’s Yard.
Selby is a market town and civil parish in the Selby District of North Yorkshire, England, 14 miles (22.5 km) south of York on the River Ouse, with a population at the 2011 census of 14,731.
The town was historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire until 1974.
Selby once had a large shipbuilding industry, and was an important port on the Selby Canal which brought trade from Leeds.
Selby lies on the tidal River Ouse in a natural area of Yorkshire known as the Humberhead Levels. The main roads which cross at Selby are the A63 from Leeds to Hull and the A19 from Doncaster to York, though the A19 and A63 no longer meet in Selby itself since the opening of the Selby Bypass in 2004. The River Ouse is navigable upstream as far as York so the old toll bridge by which the A63 crossed the river at Selby had to allow for this. For many years the swing bridge in Selby was a notorious local bottleneck but since the opening of the Selby bypass congestion in the town has been relieved.
The importance of Selby as a market town has declined in recent decades and its short lived prominence as the centre of the Selby Coalfield has also waned. Selby is close in proximity to both York and Leeds. Its popularity as a tourist destination, due to Selby Abbey, has led to a large amount of development and renovation in the town and surrounding area.
The residential areas of Selby have also been subject to expansion and development. A significant development called Staynor Hall continues to be developed on the South East of the town, with other developments in the Holmes Lane area, and around the villages of Brayton, Barlby and Thorpe Willoughby. More have been built at various points along the riverfront, the result of an ongoing project to improve an area that had been largely derelict since the decline of the shipbuilding industry.
