A coastline of contrasts
Traditional bucket-and-spade seaside fun, fantastic food, history, art, spectacular views – the Yorkshire Coast has it all.
Stretching from Spurn Point to the south up to Saltburn-by-the-Sea in the north, this unique stretch of coastline boasts a string of gorgeous and very different seaside towns and villages, from traditional resorts such as Bridlington, Filey, Scarborough and Whitby, to picture-perfect fishing communities, many of them within the North York Moors National Park, that start high on the clifftops and tumble intriguingly down to the sea, like Robin Hood’s Bay, Runswick Bay and Staithes. It’s a coastline of many contrasts, and offers the perfect holiday, whether you’re a family looking for a welcoming beach, a food lover in search of the best and the freshest, a history or culture vulture, or an outdoors type in search of walks and wildlife.
