Robin Hood's Bay Travel Guide: 56 reviews and 109 photos

Robin Hood's Bay is the liitle jewel of the Yorkshire Coast. The air is fresh and bracing - and the walk down the very steep streets to the beach is made a bit easier by steps at the side of the road. We went there again today (4/4/04) - beautiful sunny weather. But it's great here anytime.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful scenery, interesting little shops
  • Cons:Climbing back up to the car park!
  • In a nutshell:Yorkshire highlight

    Loved the local customs tip Linda. It would be interesting to know the history behind the bay's name. Wonder if it has anything to do with the old smuggling days.

    Brrrr, was there in September, the sea was so rough, you couldn't get onto the beach for a paddle :-(
