North Yorkshire Things to Do: 134 reviews and 303 photos


Just outside Whitby is one of the most famous places along the Yorkshire coast. Robin Hood's Bay has a stunning location and no matter which direction you approach it from, you will have to face extreme downhill country lanes. Once in the village itself, you can stroll around and enjoy the shops and seaside atmosphere or just let yourself get lost in the alleys winding their way up or down the hill. Down in the harbour, there are families at low tide, trying to pick interesting shells or just having fun. When the tide comes back in, it is fast and better observed from the streets above or why not from the famous harbourside pub which is the goal for so many Coast to Coast walkers as this is the end of that famous walk across England.
