The North Yorkshire coast has 45 miles of stunning coastline set against the backdrop of the North York Moors National Park. The coast is home to Britain’s First Seaside resort Scarborough, which has two stunning bays split by a 12th Century Medieval Castle. The town boasts one of the largest outdoor Open Air Theatres where top artists perform during summer months. The resort also has a diverse range of cultural museums, theatres, galleries and music venues. Whitby is the second largest of the resorts on the coast and is renowned for its maritime heritage, where Captain James Cook set sail aboard HMS Endeavour.
Whitby is known for its many festivals including the Goth Festivals held twice a year and its award winning fish and chip restaurants. The Edwardian tranquil resort of Filey is situated on the southern part of the North Yorkshire Coast and has one of the world’s best beaches (according to Trip Advisor) which stretches for over 7 miles and is adjacent to the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds.
There are also many quaint villages including Staithes, Sandsend, Robin Hoods Bay and Ravenscar. The area is ideal for all types of sporting activity including walking, cycling, kayaking and has reportedly some of the best surfing beaches in England.
Amazing seafood restaurants, vibrant bars, distilleries and breweries and year round festivals and events make this part of Yorkshire a must see.
