“Since 2002 I have worked for the German travel documentary series Mare TV. My colleagues and I produce 45-minute films all over in the world. It’s not always been easy filming abroad, with cultural differences, logistical problems, climate challenges, weird bureaucracy and the strange habits of people… “The Yorkshire Coast, though, felt like home: open arms everywhere, nice people, and lovely landscapes.. The production team and I had a wonderful time; from our cosy cottage in Whitby to the welcoming locals – we really enjoyed our work, the Yorkshire lifestyle and the fantastic coastline.

pebbles on the beach Filey was named last year as Britain’s best beach by The Sunday Times, with Scarborough and Whitby both getting honourable mentions – so what are you waiting for? There’s a beach for everyone on the beautiful Yorkshire Coast, from those just wanting to dig and wriggle their toes in the sand to curious minds who’ll be fascinated by the geology and sea life. You can even unearth fossils unseen by the human eye for millions of years – keep safe by going on a fossil-finding trip with local experts Hidden Horizons. Many of our beaches are Quality Coast assured or hold the prestigious Blue Flag, a sure sign of cleanliness and safety. Speaking of which, a beach is, of course, one of the best environments to commune with your favourite four-legged friend – they’re very welcome on most of our beaches, but please be sure to clean up after them!

Horse trekking ●

walk this way

the longest managed and waymarked coastal path in the world, and the nation’s favourite National Trail, the Cleveland Way, which this year celebrates its 50th birthday. In Dalby Forest, find woodland walking trails suitable for all abilities.

Whether you’re a serious hiker with all the kit, or just enjoy a leisurely amble around a pretty village, walking is recommended by many health experts. It builds stamina, burns calories and makes your heart healthier – even 10 minutes a day is beneficial.

And if you’re really serious about putting one foot in front of the other, Alfred Wainwright’s famous Coast to Coast Walk ends at Robin Hood’s Bay, where hikers who have traversed three national parks traditionally soothe their aching feet in the cool waters of the North Sea.

And our region offers so many walking opportunities, from pinescented forest paths to purple-tinged moorland trails and breezy beaches. There are lots of guided walks around the North York Moors National Park and Yorkshire Wolds, some of them themed – you can download them for free from discoveryorkshirecoast.com Look out too, for annual walking festivals including a major one in the National Park in May, and a little gem in Rosedale at the end of June. Many national routes cross the area, including the recently developed England Coast Path, part of

Yorkshire and cycling go together like fish and chips (and after a long day in the saddle, who wouldn’t welcome a big plateful of those?). It’s five years now since the county proudly kicked off the world’s greatest cycling race, the Tour de France. The Grand Départ in 2013 inspired what is now one of the UK’s biggest races, the UCIapproved Tour de Yorkshire,

If mountain biking is more your thing, head for Dalby Forest where you’ll find many colour-coded routes – you can even get involved in trail building. Go to discoveryorkshirecoast.com website to download free cycle routes for beginners, families and experienced riders, including the flagship Moor to Sea Cycle Network, which offers 150 miles of traffic-free cycling with routes to suit all.

whisky galore

Yorkshire has six Michelin-starred restaurants, more than any other region outside London, and two of them are local to us. If you’ve any interest in food, you’ll recognise Tommy Banks as one of the industry’s newest stars – his Black Swan at Oldstead is on the outskirts of the North York Moors National Park. Andrew Pern has recently added Whitby’s Star Inn the Harbour to his portfolio, which also includes the Michelin-starred Star at Harome, near Helmsley.

Food festivals are increasingly popular, and we have some of the very best. Malton, just 20 miles from Scarborough, lays claim to the title of Yorkshire’s food capital – it has monthly food markets, plus two big festivals in the spring and autumn, the latter celebrating game and seafood. Check out the regular food markets in Filey, Scarborough’s latest food festival in May, and demos from top chefs at the annual Seafest on Scarborough’s seafront in the summer. And – new for 2019 – keep your eyes peeled for news of a brilliant new festival of food and fishing, cheekily entitled Fish and Ships, in Whitby in May.

It’s Yorkshire’s first single malt whisky, and it’s distilled right here on the Yorkshire Coast. The Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery in Hunmanby, near Filey, uses barley and spring water grown and sourced on the family farm – all the great ingredients that also go into their award-winning beers from sister company, the Wold Top Brewery. You can tour the distillery for a fascinating insight into the process.

plenty of fish in the sea You know how the old joke goes – seafood and eat it. With some of the best seafood anywhere right on our doorsteps, we enjoy what’s officially some of the most delicious fish and chips in the country: Fusco’s Quayside in Whitby is a recent winner of the national title of fish and chip shop of the year. Nearby, the Magpie remains a perennial favourite – they’re so used to queues, they keep a stock of appropriately black-andwhite umbrellas to hand out when it rains. In Scarborough, the seafront Golden Grid was recently voted one of the UK’s top 10 fish restaurants by readers of the Daily Express and Daily Mirror.

laid-back lunching (and more) Love casual dining? Try the busy Eat Me Café in Scarborough, a relaxed bistro which regularly appears in the Good Food Guide; Rusty Shears in Whitby, with its remarkable selection of gins; Chapter One Bistro in Malton, serving great food at reasonable prices; and Olivers On The Mount, with amazing views from the highest location in Scarborough.

bottoms up! Like to relax over a glass of something delicious? Try one of the many fabulous local beers from breweries including Bay Town in Robin Hood’s Bay, the Scarborough Brewery, the Great Yorkshire Brewery at Cropton, or Wold Top near Filey. If a long, cool G&T is more up your street, try it with a twist, using the superb sloe gin from Malton’s Sloe Motion.

And they may not have stars, but they still win top awards and pull in the national food critics – try the Lanterna in Scarborough for its northern Italian vibe, Sandsend’s stylish Estbeck House for great seafood, and the Hare Inn at Scawton for its innovative tasting menu.

The lively Malton Cookery School offers a multitude of courses, from family bake-offs and vegan cookery to the best of Yorkshire meat.

CHEF

Giorgio Alessio is the chef/proprietor of Scarborough’s La Lanterna Ristorante. He was described by the Mail on Sunday’s food critic, Tom Parker Bowles, as ‘a great cook in thrall to great ingredients… the soul of real Italian cookery’. Giorgio moved to Scarborough from his native Piedmont in 1981 and has lived here ever since. He says: “The Yorkshire coast is the perfect location for me – I can get beautiful produce including game from the North York Moors and some of the best fresh fish you’ll find anywhere in the world.”

There are more great pop acts at the outdoor Dalby Forest concerts throughout the summer, while classical fans will enjoy concerts at Scarborough’s famous Spa Sun Court, and at the North York Moors Chamber Music Festival each August. Both Whitby and Filey have fabulous annual folk festivals, while the line-up at Whitby’s Musicport, the UK’s biggest indoor annual world music festival, is always an absolute knockout. Scarborough Spa’s Secret Blues Festival in the spring and Jazz Festival in the autumn both draw music-lovers from across the UK. And, of course, there’s always a busy live music scene around the many pubs and clubs in the area.

The SJT continues its long association with playwright Alan Ayckbourn, who premieres his latest plays at the venue each summer. The Theatre also has a busy year-round programme of its own productions and visiting plays.

making history The Yorkshire Coast has always played an important role in the history of this country. Whether your tastes are for the ancient or the modern, you’ll find somewhere intriguing to visit – try Scarborough Castle, Whitby Abbey, the Rotunda Museum, Castle Howard or Rievaulx Abbey for starters. Our many coastal towns and villages are stuffed with fascinating history to uncover, including the Pre-Raphaelites in Scarborough, the jet industry in Whitby, the fishing heritage of Filey, and smuggling in Robin Hood’s Bay,

museum piece The Yorkshire Coast is important geologically, so it’ll come as no surprise that two of our museums are internationally famous for their geological collections – Whitby

Museum, and Scarborough’s Rotunda, one of the world’s first purpose-built museums. Visit the enchanting Captain Cook Memorial Museum in Whitby’s Grape Lane, in a house where the man himself once lived, and Eden Camp, near Malton, in a former PoW camp covering British military and social history since 1914. Both small but beautiful, Scarborough’s Maritime Heritage Centre and the volunteer-run Filey Museum are musts for any fan of maritime history.

art unlimited Stunning permanent collections and temporary exhibitions can be found at both Scarborough Art Gallery, which has an important collection of Atkinson Grimshaws, and Whitby’s Pannett Art Gallery, home to the only comprehensive public display of paintings from the Staithes Group of artists. And, of course, there are plenty of small independent galleries in the towns and villages along the coast. Each September, one of our most picturesque villages is transformed into one huge art gallery for the Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage, a not-to-be-missed event.

Whitby Abbey towers over the town, and was one of the inspirations for Victorian writer Bram Stoker, creator of Dracula. Alice author Lewis Carroll also loved Whitby – his first published poem was in the local paper in 1854. Both authors are paid tribute to in the town’s annual goth and steampunk festivals.

The awe-inspiring spectacle of the North York Moors makes it a natural choice for protected status as a National Park. From the stark beauty of the heather moorlands that bloom purple in the late summer, to the dense carpet of deep green spruce and pine trees that cover the hillsides of Dalby Forest, the region offers a multitude of breathtaking vistas complemented by dramatic skies and diverse flora and fauna. Those with a passion for the outdoors can throw themselves into many activities and destinations: thrillseekers can tackle Dalby’s exhilarating mountain bike trails, previously used in the Mountain Bike Cross-Country World Cup, or clamber among the treetops on the Go Ape adventure trail. For a more leisurely pursuit, walk the jaw-dropping coastal paths of the Cleveland Way, this year celebrating its 50th anniversary, or admire the moors from the comfort of a heritage steam train on the spectacular North Yorkshire Moors Railway. If you can tear yourself away from the splendour of the countryside, traditional market towns such as Malton, Norton, Pickering, Kirkbymoorside and Helmsley offer an escape from the hurly-burly of modern life, with great food and drink, historical sites and an ever-expanding cultural scene.

Make your way to Whitby in May for the Fish and Ship Festival, a celebration of food and fishing that combines the town’s long and illustrious history in the fishing industry with the world-famous culinary delights it produces.

Filey’s famous and picturesque Coble Landing (and yes, that is just the one ‘b’), is named for its association with the town’s distinctive fishing boat. The beautiful clinker-built wooden Filey coble is getting increasingly rare: fewer than ten remain, some of which you can see by taking a stroll down the landing amongst the arcades and cafes.

a smugglers’ haven Now better known for its steep and intricate intertwined streets, 300 years ago Robin Hood’s Bay – or Bay Town, as the locals call it – was the busiest smuggling community on the Yorkshire Coast. Tea, gin, rum, brandy and tobacco were among the contraband smuggled into Yorkshire from the continent. Now, you can travel back in time and experience this secretive heritage for yourself with the self-guided Robin Hood’s Bay Smuggler’s Trail, with a number of former smuggling hotspots in the town now imaginatively recreating the atmosphere of the period.

shed some light Scarborough’s distinctive white lighthouse, at the end of the 18th century Vincent Pier, played its part in a particularly remarkable moment in the town’s history. When the town came under attack from German battlecruisers in November 1914, causing the first British civilian deaths of World War I, the lighthouse was badly damaged, with one shell breaching the tower. It was demolished and reconstructed in 1931. Alongside it stands the statue of the graceful Diving Belle, symbolising a forward-looking

contemporary Scarborough. Take a walk down the pier to see the majestic tower up close, whilst also enjoying the views across Scarborough’s famous South Bay.

cook A statue of Captain James Cook surveys Whitby from the town’s lofty West Cliff, next to the famous Whalebone Arch. The great explorer was born near Middlesbrough, and in his youth spent brief spells as a draper’s apprentice in Staithes and as a trainee with a Whitby shipping firm. The Captain Cook Memorial Museum on Whitby’s Grape Lane, in the house where he lodged, takes you on a journey through the life of one of the greatest figures of the Age of Discovery.

coast. The Yorkshire Coast isn’t just about summer sun and sandcastles. Oh no. This region has a rich and thrilling tradition of folklore, myths and legends, ghosts, witches and dragons.

St. Mary’s Church and the Abbey, Whitby

The most famous spine-chiller on the Curious Coast is, of course, Count Dracula, who first came ashore at Whitby in the guise of a black dog. The Victorian author Bram Stoker was not only inspired by the town’s gothic splendour but, we’d like to think, by much older tales of terror and supernatural goings-on around these parts.

ghosts Whitby’s snaking alleyways rattle with ghosts, including a Grape Lane baker’s daughter who died when her hair caught fire and who appears amid flames. At Boulby Hall, the phantom of pirate Browne Bushell roams the corridors at night. Visit the stunning clifftop Abbey and you might spot the apparition of a nun bricked-up for breaking her vows of chastity, or the white-shrouded St Hilda in the glassless upper windows. The West Pier Lighthouse has its own spectral lighthouse keeper who died slipping down its wet steps, while bloodcurdling shrieks give the Screaming Tunnel, leading from Khyber Pass to the West Cliff, its name.

home to Headless Bert, decapitated by a train; and Scarborough is stalked by many ghosts, including Piers Gaveston, guardian of Scarborough Castle, and poltergeists aplenty at the spectacular Grand Hotel, overlooking the South Bay.

boggles and barguests North Yorkshire is partial to a boggle and a barguest – the former a hob, or goblin-like creature, most obviously found at fossil-rich Boggle Hole, the latter a black devil dog with terrifying red eyes whose howl precedes death. In some places, including Goathland which has its very own, it’s known as a gytrash. Sandsend had its own unique bogey (a variant of boggle) which brought good luck to the local fishermen – although, true to type, he eventually

took to frightening local children, and had to be exorcised.

sea monsters and dragons Filey has more than its fair share of mythical monsters – the Brigg, a rocky peninsula, is said to be the bones of a local dragon which flew into the sea to wash some Yorkshire parkin from its teeth and drowned. And as recently as 1934, this picturesque fishing town featured in the national press when a local coastguard encountered a sea monster with ‘huge eyes like saucers… [it] appeared as startled as I was’.

strictly for the birds

Towering cliffs, sandy beaches, rocky coves – the varied landscapes of the Yorkshire Coast provide a perfect haven for all sorts of marine life. Join a Whitby Whale Watching tour – they’ve recorded sightings of humpback, minke and sei whales plus, of course, dolphins, porpoises and seals – or get up close and personal with local sea creatures alongside more exotic turtles, octopus, penguins and giant Japanese spider crabs at Scarborough’s Sea Life Sanctuary. Coastal explorers Hidden Horizons offer rock pooling, fossil hunting and dinosaur walks on our beautiful beaches.

Birds flock to the Yorkshire Coast. Filey’s famous Brigg, a rocky peninsula and Site of Special Scientific Interest, provides a welcome resting place for migrating birds, and nearby freshwater Filey Dams teems with birds, small mammals, plants, insects and amphibians, including great crested newts in nationally important numbers. Inland, the National Centre for Birds of Prey at Helmsley is home to the largest collection in the north of England, with birds from both the UK and abroad. Internationally known wildlife artist and photographer Robert Fuller creates his extraordinary images at his studio in Thixendale, near Malton.

And while your head is in the clouds, check out the stars: the low light pollution and clear horizons of the North York Moors National Park make it one of the best places in the country to see them. Look out for their Dark Skies Festival in February, or join a Hidden Horizons stargazing trip.

born to the purple Our region boasts some of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the UK, from rugged coastal cliffs to the glorious and very special heather-clad North York Moors. The Park, a vision in the late summer and early autumn when the purple heather is in bloom, has 26 miles of spectacular coastline and two national nature reserves, attracting an estimated 7.9 million visitors a year.

natural habitat The apex of the Yorkshire Nature Triangle is in our region. This remarkable area covers five very different habitats, including the Vale of York, the Humber Estuary and, within easy reach of Scarborough and Filey, the famous RSPB reserve at Bempton. One of the UK’s best and most accessible wildlife spectacles, the lofty white cliffs are home to both the largest mainland colony of majestic gannets, and the most easily viewable mainland colony of clown-like puffins. With the most northerly chalk downland streams and internationally important wetlands also in the area, it’s a magnet for nature-lovers.

traditional family fun

The Yorkshire Coast has so many opportunities for all the family to enjoy days out and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Sometimes, you just need to wind down with some old-fashioned activities for young and old.

Alpamare, one of the best waterparks in Europe, overlooks Scarborough’s North Bay and offers thrills aplenty with four state-of-the-art slides including the unique Black Run and, for frazzled parents, a luxurious new wellness zone with saunas, steam baths and spa. On the outskirts of the town, the North Yorkshire Water Park at Wykeham caters for all needs aquatic, from relaxing fishing to energetic watersports and a ‘total wipeout’ inflatable obstacle experience. And there’s even more watery fun at Filey’s Bay Watersports, including paddle boarding, kayaking and coasteering. Lions, tigers, rhinos and hippos are among the many animals in the extensive zoo and conservation area at Flamingo Land Resort, near Malton, along with some some high-energy extreme rides. And your own little monkeys can Go Ape in Dalby Forest, or get airborne on the North Bay Sky Trail Adventure in Scarborough.

time travellers Exciting things happened in the past – help your children discover their history and have fun while they’re doing it.

Scarborough’s lovely Orientalthemed Peasholm Park is perfect for a family day out, with a boating lake, bandstand, putting green and, of course, the world-famous naval warfare display!

Hutton-le-Hole’s fascinating Ryedale Folk Museum enables them to experience history at first hand with real historic buildings rebuilt in its grounds. Eden Camp Museum, near Malton, is a former PoW camp, with displays on both World Wars in its 33 original huts.

The nearby North Bay beach is home to vibrant beach chalets that you’ll have seen in a thousand photographs – and what seaside holiday is complete without a donkey ride?

Scarborough’s Rotunda Museum specialises in geology – meet amazing creatures from millions of years ago in its new Ancient Seas of the Yorkshire Coast exhibition.

The North Bay is also the venue for the Open Air Theatre – both it and the Spa, in Scarborough’s South Bay, hold regular free family shows.

Both in the care of English Heritage, the ancient monuments of Whitby Abbey and Scarborough Castle host regular themed family events. And there are stately homes both great and small across the region, including stunning Castle Howard and delightful Scampston Hall, both with glorious gardens.

Young sporting fans will enjoy Scarborough Footgolf at Killerby, near Cayton, and crazy golf at Scarborough’s Sea Life Sanctuary. Days out in the Great Yorkshire Forest at Dalby offer fun for all: there’s a Highway Rat Activity Trail and, in the forest and the rest of its remarkable home, the North York Moors National Park, tons of playgrounds, picnic areas and bike trails to suit all ages and abilities. North York Moors Railway ●

The kids will love a trip to sea aboard the Bark Endeavour, a craftsman-built replica of Captain Cook’s ship, which sails out of Whitby Harbour or climb aboard the full size HM Bark Endeavour and experience life on board as it embarks upon its adventures around the world. Go to sea in Scarborough on board the pirate ship Hispaniola, a scale replica of an 18th century schooner, or for a more adrenaline-fuelled ride, take your place on a speedboat.

The Tour de Yorkshire cycle race is now the second biggest pro stage race in the UK behind the Tour of Britain, and a legacy of the Tour de France Grand Départ which took place in the county in 2014. A spectacular stage finish on Scarborough’s seafront has been part of the race for the last four years – watch this space! New last year in Scarborough was a fantastic Food & Drink Festival – keep an eye out for it again in 2019. In Whitby, there’s a funand-seafood-filled weekend planned

And the North York Moors National Park really comes into its own in July, with ParkFest, National Parks Week and MoorsFest.

September:

Two unique festivals bring art and music to the coast in September – the unique Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage sees artists converting homes and shops in the picturesque town into pop-up galleries, while Scarborough Jazz Festival is renowned as one of the best of its type.

The world-famous Scarborough Cricket Festival has brought top-notch sporting action to the coast since 1876.

November:

Sequence, modern ballroom, Latin American – take your partners this month for Scarborough Dance Festival at the town’s Spa.
