North Yorkshire Coast

North Yorkshire Coast

The yorkshire coast is one of the county's most spectacular coastlines. There are dramatic cliffs towering above the sea. Fossils of ammonites and other sea creatures can be found in the area.

Pretty villages and interesting old towns are dotted along the coastline. Runswick bay is an unusual village with winding narrow streets leading to cottages perched at the waters' edge.

Scarborough is an old fashioned seaside resort which retains much of its victorian grandeur. It has something for everyone! There is a castle which dominates the town, the victorian Spa complex, unusual trams running us and down the cliffs, the Sea Life centre, plenty of seaside amusements and donkeys on the beach.


Whitby is not far away and is famous for its Jet. It has a wonderful harbour with a lifting bridge to allow the boats out to sea. There are many interesting small shops and cafes including the famous 'Magpie' cafe for fish and chips, a lovely pier, and of course a beach!
