De Cicerone wandelgids heeft een handzaam formaat, de informatie in de gidsen is steeds bijzonder compleet. De wandelingen zijn geordend per streek, met diverse uitstapjes in de locale historie. Start/eindpunt, afstand en hoogteverschillen zijn aangegeven. Er wordt geen indicatie voor de tijdsduur afgegeven, de een loopt nou eenmaal sneller dan de andere. Daarnaast bevat de gids algemene informatie: een handige lijst van adressen/telefoonnummers van medische voorzieningen, openbaar vervoer, toeristische informatie, etc.

This guidebook describes 38 circular walks in the tranquil Wolds hills of East Yorkshire, in the north of England. These are rolling chalk hills giving gentle walking, stretching down to the sea with some inspiring cliff walks, just north of Hull, from places like Beverley, Bridlington and Filey.

The Yorkshire Wolds are little known to outsiders and yet the whole of the Wolds is ideal walking country, a cornucopia of hidden delights. The hills are gentle, the dales tranquil, picturesque villages and attractive farmsteads abound, and there is a freshness about this uncluttered, open, sometimes windswept land that cheers, uplifts and makes you feel good just to be there.

The strength of the Wolds lies in the underlying chalk, for from this bedrock stems its gentleness and boundless charm. Severe contrasts are rare in this peaceful landscape, where the great appeal is the subtleness of the harmonies.

Most of the 38 walks presented here are circular, and collectively they total 353 miles. Each is complete within itself and has much to offer; but when the walks are used as a link in a captivating chain that weaves over wold and dale, joining spectacular coastal scenery to the gentle, rolling inland chalk downs, the whole evolves into something special.
