Leisure Activities - Yorkshire Coast
Walking, paddling, swimming, surfing; art galleries and theatres; cultural attractions ranging from tiny independent art galleries through world-class theatre to ancient castles and abbeys – you can find it all on the Yorkshire coast.
And wherever on this coast you choose to base yourself, the rest of it is within two hours’ drive – so if you fancied exploring a tumbling clifftop fishing village packed with quirky shops and galleries in the morning, doing a spot of bird-watching at one of the world’s premiere spots for seabirds in the afternoon, followed by an evening of world-beating theatre – it can all be yours!
