There are 15 heritage walks of different lengths around the town area which are fully signed with information boards about the area and the new picnic site by the nearby river Aire allows walkers to eat, drink and rest. In the month of September the town holds a heritage day with a different theme each year which allow both young and old to show off their talents.

Other nearby attractions include riding schools, and sailing club and shooting school. Established in 1983, Old Mill Brewery is a small independent family owned brewery, housed in an 18th century former corn mill and maltings at Snaith and is a popular tourist attraction.
