Filey Seafront, Yorkshire Coast

Filey Seafront, Yorkshire Coast

The Yorkshire Coast is one of the UK's most popular seaside coasts, with a mix of designated heritage coast around Flamborough Head and a choice of Britain's best holiday seaside resorts. One of the country's oldest historic seaside resorts sits on the Yorkshire Coast, Scarborough saw the arrival of the first bathing machines in 1735 and later became famous as a seaside spa town after the discovery of mineral spa waters at South Bay.

Scarborough is a veritable feast of seaside Victorian architecture flanking two spectacular beach bays. A superb choice of theatres, cinemas, clubs, bars, restaurants and a host of holiday attractions are all here in Scarborough. Maritime Whitby, with its close links to Captain Cook and Bram Stoker's Dracula is another Yorkshire Coast holiday hotspot. The Cook Memorial Museum in Whitby pays due homage to the town's famous apprentice who went on from Whitby to undertake his three epic voyages.

Whitby is also a feast for the specialist shopper with a fine choice of arts and crafts shops including jewellers selling the famous Whitby Jet. Whitby Abbey ruins, relatively intact compared to others in the UK, stands as a magnificent gothic feature high above Whitby town on the cliff top.

North Bay, Scarborough

Blue Flag beaches along the Yorkshire Coast feature at Bridlington, Hornsea, Withernsea, Scarborough and Whitby! Bridlington is a mecca for family holidays with its fine beach and choice of family holiday attractions, especially its beach front funfairs and amusements. Pushing south of Bridlington more fine beaches await on the Holderness stretch at Withernsea and Hornsea. Further south still sits the stunning Spurn Point Spit, a haven for migratory birds which juts out across the Humber Estuary.
