Whitby on the Yorkshire Coast

The Yorkshire Coast is where classic English seaside resorts mingle with heritage coasts, idyllic fishing villages and beautiful harbour towns offering up the best ‘fresh from the catch’ seafood. Blue Flag beaches galore line the Yorkshire Coast from the golden sands of Hornsea on the Holderness Coast and Filey’s family friendly endless sands to the two Blue Flag beach bays of Scarborough and beach bay gem Runswick Bay.

The Queen of the Yorkshire seaside resorts is spa town Scarborough , a true dazzler for heritage seaside architecture from the Victorian Spa building and Grand Hotel on the Seafront to one of England’s best geological museums – the conical shaped and recently restored Rotunda Museum. From watersports and aquariums to pleasure boating parks and seaside cliff lifts, Scarborough is a vintage seaside gem featuring the acclaimed Art Deco gem , the Stephen Joseph Theatre linked to theatre legend Alan Ayckbourn.

For glorious coastal walking and nature reserves along the Yorkshire Coast, experience the magical coastal cliff landscapes of the North Yorkshire and Cleveland Heritage Coast stretching from Robin Hood’s Bay north to Ravenscar, incorporating magnificent sites like the Boulby Cliffs and pretty fishing village Staithes. Other areas of heritage coast in Yorkshire include the Spurn Head spit, a national nature reserve and you’ll find spectacular coastal walking just north of Bridlington around the Flamborough headland with lighthouse.

Looking for family fun on the Yorkshire Coast? Head to bustling Bridlington with its pretty harbour, best family beach and amusements lining the promenade. Heritage harbour town Whitby on the North York Moors Coast is great for families, featuring fun family Dracula attractions, ghost tours, boat trips and a range of specialist shops and inns.
