"Dramatic seaside gem" Top 5 Page for this destination Robin Hood's Bay by Sjalen

Robin Hood's Bay Travel Guide: 57 reviews and 109 photos

Robin Hood's Bay got its name as legend has it the great hero hid here once when he was chased. Today, people don't come here to hide but to explore a great seaside destination or to end their hiking as this is the East coast end of the famous "Coast to Coast" walk. It can be a bit crowded with tourists but if you go a weekend in September it shouldn't be too bad. That's also when the heather blooms on the surrounding moors.

    This looks like quite a pleasant little part of England's coast! I have not made it that far north yet but, when I do, I'll definitely consider a beer while sitting outside at the Bay Hotel!

    Ufff.... it was still me who was the last person who commented on this page on august 31st 2003... but Robin Hoods Bay is indeed a true gem of the Yorkshire coast ... It still seems to be a hidden gem ...:o)
