Mix it up Stretching from Saltburn-by-the-Sea in the north to Filey in the south, the north Yorkshire Coast has it all – history, wildlife, countryside, culture, cuisine, and some of the finest beaches you’ll find anywhere in the world. There’s accommodation to suit all tastes and pockets in the three main resorts – peaceful Filey, vibrant Scarborough and quirky Whitby – plus the many characterful villages in between, and all within easy striking distance of the some glorious countryside, including the magnificent North York Moors National Park.

In the swim

But there’s more, so much more, on offer in the seas of Yorkshire, from adrenaline-fuelled coasteering, surfing and paddleboarding to more serene sailing. Or, of course, you might just want to dip your toes in the water with a bit of sedate paddling. Our waters are tempting, and mostly safe for all kinds of activities – but please be sure to check local tides and conditions and take heed of relevant safety advice.

Your ship’s coming in We’re a seafaring nation, so it’s hardly surprising that so many of us get a thrill from a life on the ocean wave. Pleasure cruisers and pirate ships, deep-sea angling and seal, porpoise

Recent research suggests that open water swimming is excellent for our health, both physical and mental.

DERREN LITTEN

WRITER/CREATOR, SCARBOROUGH Writer Derren Litten is the award-winning creator of the long-running hit ITV series Benidorm and the BBC’s recent reboot of Are You Being Served? His latest show is Scarborough, filmed in the town in 2019 and starring Jason Manford, Stephanie Cole, Catherine Tyldesley and Claire Sweeney. Derren says: “What a blast! If viewers enjoy it half as much as we all enjoyed making it we are onto a winner – so many cast and crew are saying they have Scarborough withdrawal symptoms! That place is addictive!! “After 10 years of Benidorm I really do think Scarborough is going to surprise a few people and in very good way.”

and whale watching – they’re all just waiting for you to find your sea legs. You can even follow in the footsteps of that greatest of explorers, Captain Cook, who grew up near Whitby and served his apprenticeship in the town – it now has two replicas of his great ship, the Endeavour, to choose from. And if you’re sure you never will find those sea legs, you can still discover the magic of the oceans in miniature in our constantly changing rock pools – there’s something new to find with the turn of every tide.

Beach life In 2019, our beaches were repeatedly named as being among the best in the country by some of the UK’s top publications, from Boggle Hole’s fossil-laden sands coming in at number 2 in The Times’ 40 Best British Beaches to Robin Hood’s Bay, Whitby, Saltburn-by-the-Sea and Scarborough all being highly rated in the country’s top 100 beaches in a report by consumer group Which? Filey was in that select group, too, as well as being voted one of the world’s top six beaches on TripAdvisor, alongside Bondi Beach in Australia and Siesta Beach in Florida! With recommendations like that, what more can we add? Well, perhaps you’d also like to know that many of our beaches are Quality Coast assured or hold the prestigious Blue Flag, a sure sign of cleanliness and safety. Dogs are very welcome on most of our beaches – it’s a natural environment for them – but please help us to keep those awards by cleaning up after them!

There’s so much to do on the coast that it’s easy to forget that it’s just the easternmost edge of one of the UK’s most loved areas of countryside, including the magnificent North York Moors National Park, the verdant Vale of Pickering and the beautiful Howardian Hills AONB. We’re not far, either, from the sweeping Yorkshire Wolds, beloved by artists including David Hockney.

Cycling in the North York Moors National Park

Natural adventure play area at Sutton Bank National Park Centre

Walking on air It’s official – we should all be walking more. Shanks’s pony is good for our hearts and minds, and it doesn’t matter if you’re a serious hiker, or just enjoy a leisurely stroll. Get out there and take advantage of the many possibilities for walking in this region, for all ages and abilities. Breathe in the pine aromas of a deep green forest; marvel at the purple moorland heather, stretching as far as the eye can see; stride along a blue-and-gold beach. The North York Moors National Park and the Yorkshire Wolds both offer many guided walks, some of them themed – you can download them for free from discoveryorkshirecoast.com If you fancy making friends while you stroll, try a walking festival: there’s a major one in the National Park each May, and a smaller version in Rosedale in June.

Many national routes criss-cross the area, including part of the England Coast Path, which will be the world’s longest managed and waymarked coastal path when finished, and the Cleveland Way National Trail, which last year celebrated its 50th birthday. Find woodland trails for all abilities in Dalby Forest. And Robin Hood’s Bay is famously the finish of Alfred Wainwright’s Coast to Coast Walk: those finishing the 293km walk where hikers who have traversed three national parks traditionally dip their booted feet in the North Sea.

On your bike In 2014, Yorkshire was proud to be chosen as the location for the Grand Départ, the first stage of the world’s greatest cycling race: the Tour de France. The legacy of that amazing event inspired one of the UK’s biggest races, the UCI-approved Tour de Yorkshire, which each year brings world-famous riders to our coast and countryside.

No wonder, then, that cycling is such a big thing around here, with both road and off-road routes for all abilities right across the area, and plenty of cycle-friendly B&Bs and hotels, cycle hire options and cycling shops. The Great Yorkshire Forest at Dalby is one of the UK’s biggest trail centres and is hugely popular with mountain bikers of all ages, with everything from green family trails to black-graded XC loops. And you can download free cycle routes from the North York Moors National Park website, including the flagship Moor to Sea Cycle Network, a 150-mile trail which connects Scarborough, Whitby, Dalby Forest, Pickering and Great Ayton and all on safe forest tracks, ‘green lanes’ and minor roads.

Horseplay With over 800km of horse-friendly bridleways, the North York Moors National Park is an equestrian paradise. Choose from woodlands, disused railway tracks, beaches and peaceful country lanes. And if you need a crash course or reminder of long-forgotten skills – or even need to borrow a horse or pony – there are plenty of friendly riding centres, too. If you have your own horse, you might like to try the The North York Moors and Dales Ride, a four-day, 55-mile circular route devised by the British Horse Society, through the spectacular scenery of the central and western areas of the National Park.


The beautiful Forestry Commissionrun woodlands at Dalby, Cropton, Harwood Dale, Broxa and Langdale are home to an extensive network of riding tracks – and for the ultimate wind-in-your-hair experience, you can even ride on some of our beaches.

Off the beaten track Live life adventurously at Go Ape in the Great Yorkshire Forest at Dalby: thrills include a jaw-dropping Treetop Challenge, a Treetop Adventure, Forest Segways and, for after-dark daredevils, Twilight Zips.

Village life The Yorkshire Coast’s many charming fishing villages are complemented by the market towns of the adjoining countryside. The main market towns in the region, - Helmsley, Pickering, Kirkbymoorside and Malton - and large villages such as Hunmanby, are all delightful destinations for a day out, with many independent shops, galleries and craft workshops and, of course, markets selling unique gifts and works of art.

Reach for the stars With six Michelin-starred restaurants in the county – more than any other region outside London – you can tell how much Yorkshire folk appreciate good food. Two of those stars are local to us: the Black Swan at Oldstead, where TV chef Tommy Banks is in charge, while Andrew Pern’s Star Inn the Harbour at Whitby is sister restaurant to the Michelinstarred Star Inn at Harome, near Helmsley. Other award-winning restaurants in the area include Scarborough’s Lanterna, described by Italian newspaper La Stampa as ‘the English temple of Italian cuisine’; Sandsend’s two AA Rosette-winning Estbek House set in a beautiful Georgian townhouse; Jeremy’s in Scarborough, run by a former head chef at Marco Pierre White’s Quo Vadis; and the Hare Inn at Scawton, which holds three AA Rosettes. A recent addition to the region’s restaurant scene, The Farrier at Cayton, has made quite a splash.

Fishy business Can there be anything better than that first bite of freshly-cooked fish and chips: crisp golden batter enveloping flakes of firm white fish, alongside salty chips? Head to Whitby for the best in the country – and that’s official: Trencher’s was named Best in the UK at the 2019 Seafish National Fish and Chip Awards; a title awarded to another Whitby outlet, Fusco’s Quayside, a couple of years ago. Just up the road, The Magpie Café is famed worldwide for its fish and chips, and more. And Scarborough’s Golden Grid serves up a fish supper not to be missed.

Out to lunch

Blithe spirits

Longing for lunch? The relaxed vibe and diverse menu at Scarborough’s Eat Me Café and Mojo’s makes them hugely popular with locals; there’s a similar ambience at Rusty Shears in Whitby, with a pretty courtyard for outdoor eating in fine weather. Feline fans will love the new – wait for it! – steampunk-and-cat-themed café in Scarborough, Steampuss. And there’s great food and coffee at two new offerings in the town – Koda, and The Hideout Café.

A single malt whisky – from Yorkshire? Yes, you read that right. The Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery at Hunmanby, near Filey, recently bottled the firstever malt made in the county – and it’s a cracker! Meanwhile, the Whitby Distillery’s Whitby Gin was named Best British London Dry Gin at the 2019 World Gin Awards. Look out, too, for their suitably blood-red ‘Stoker’ edition, named for the creator of Dracula. And check out Sloemotion, near Malton – their original sloe gin has been joined by many other versions, including a hedgerow gin flavoured with elderflowers, rosehips, nettles, crabapples, sloe stones and wildflower hay.

Produce the goods Prefer to cook for yourself? You’ll need some of the great produce around here – try Scarborough’s Tree Top Press for organic fruit and veg, and home-produced cider and cordials; Botham’s of Whitby for brilliant baked good, including the famous Whitby lemon bun; and The Whitby Cheese Company for a delicious range with locally-inspired names, including the black-waxed Whitby Jet.

Food for life Who doesn’t love a good food festival – the place where you might just stumble across your new favourite flavour? Twenty-odd miles inland from Scarborough, Malton holds the title of Yorkshire’s food capital, and hosts busy monthly food markets, as well as a larger festival each spring and autumn, the latter specialising in game and seafood. There are regular food markets in Filey, a May event in Scarborough, and you can meet top chefs from across the region at the annual summer Seafest on Scarborough seafront. Look out, too, for the second Fish and Ships festival in Whitby in May – it celebrates the town’s maritime heritage, including its fishing industry.

To absent friends… You might wish you’d brought them with you when you visit one of our many welcoming local pubs and find the range of fabulous local beers on offer from breweries such as Bay Town in Robin Hood’s Bay, the Scarborough Brewery, the Great Yorkshire Brewery at Cropton, or Wold Top near Filey, sister company to the Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery.

ROB GREEN

CHEF AND SEAFISH AMBASSADOR Whitby-based Rob is a professional chef consultant with over 30 years’ experience and an Ambassador for Seafish, which supports the UK seafood industry. Rob ran the multi-award-winning restaurant Green’s of Whitby for 15 years, during which time he won the coveted title of Seafood Chef of the Year. Rob says: “With an array of top-quality produce so readily available it’s a chef’s dream to be located on the Yorkshire Coast. The fabulous fresh fish landed at the local markets and the prime local meats sourced from neighbouring farms all make for rich pickings!”

Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre is known worldwide as the place where renowned playwright Alan Ayckbourn premieres his latest play each summer; the town centre venue is open all year, with a packed programme of shows, films, music and more.

History is everywhere on the Yorkshire Coast – you’ll just bump into it wherever you go. Start by climbing the 199 steps to Whitby Abbey, or visiting the castle at Scarborough followed by, less than five minutes’ walk away, the grave of writer Anne Brontë – 2020 marks the 200th anniversary of her birth.

Comedy and music stars tread the boards at the seafront Spa in Scarborough; its sister theatre in Whitby, the Pavilion, stages a diverse programme ranging from amateur dramatics to the big names through the year. Look out, too, for a wide range of theatrical events at Scarborough’s YMCA Theatre and Filey’s Evron Centre.

State of the art Scarborough Art Gallery hosts regularly changing exhibitions and also has an important permanent collection, including works by Lord Leighton, who was born in the town, and John Atkinson Grimshaw.

Music to your ears Over the past few years, Scarborough’s Open Air Theatre has become one of the UK’s best live music venues, with a wide-ranging programme: Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears, Lewis Capaldi, Biffy Clyro, Lionel Ritchie and Alfie Boe are recently headliners, while for 2020 the venue will welcome Little Mix, Snow Patrol, McFly and Marc Almond amongst others. Forest Live brings outdoor music to Dalby Forest, including Paul Weller, Rick Astley and Elbow in the last two years. Filey and Whitby have highly regarded annual folk festivals, and Whitby’s Musicport is the UK’s biggest indoor annual world music festival. Scarborough Spa’s springtime Secret Blues Festival and autumn Jazz Festival draw music-lovers from across the country. And, of course, there’s loads of live music to choose from at the many pubs and clubs in the area. Prefer your music classical? Scarborough’s famous Spa Sun Court is home to the last remaining professional seaside orchestra. Check out the North York Moors Chamber Music Festival in August – a little gem that brings classical musicians from across the world to play in churches across the North York Moors.

Whitby’s Pannett Art Gallery is home to the only comprehensive public display of paintings by the Staithes Group of artists, whose number included Dame Laura and Harold Knight. They inspired the annual Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage, an autumn event which sees the village transformed into one big art gallery, with artists taking over shops and private homes.

In this less-than-50-mile stretch of coast, you’ll find mind-expanding tales of medieval monks and PreRaphaelites painters, jet workers and smugglers, Royalists and Parliamentarians, and so much more.

Night at the museum Walk along the Yorkshire Coast and you walk with dinosaurs – fossils are common. Both Scarborough’s Rotunda, one of the world’s first purpose-built museums, and Whitby Museum have superb collections. Visit the Captain Cook Memorial Museum in Grape Lane in Whitby and you’ll walk in the footsteps of the famous explorer – he lodged there while an apprentice in the town in the 1740s. Intriguing Eden Camp near Malton, which covers British military and social history, is an exhibit in its own right – it was once a PoW camp. And they may be small, but Scarborough’s Maritime Heritage Centre and Filey Museum both pack a punch for fans of maritime history.

EMMA STOTHARD SCULPTOR

Born and brought up near Spurn Point, Emma Stothard has spent most of her adult life living and working in Whitby. Her woven sculptures, using materials including willow, and bronze, galvanized steel and sterling silver wire, can be found in the gardens of stately homes, galleries and homes worldwide including The Royal Gardens at Highgrove, the private gardens of Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. She is a regular exhibitor at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, including in the prize-winning Welcome to Yorkshire gardens and in Jardin Blanc, the hospitality area created by Michelin-starred chef Raymond Blanc. Emma’s work can be seen each year at the annual Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage. Emma says: “The stunning landscapes and wildlife of the countryside around Whitby are a constant inspiration for me – I love to spot animals and birds when I’m out and about walking my dog, Lily.” In 2020, Emma is creating an exciting new sculpture trail for Whitby, celebrating the rich history of the town’s fishing industry.

The original, and still the best Scarborough is where the seaside holiday first began – it’s been attracting visitors since the 1600s, when one Mrs Farrer first discovered the healing potential of the Spa waters. Fast-forward 400 years, and people are still flocking to Scarborough all year round. Its two Quality Coast Awardwinning beaches offer very different experiences, the glitz of the vibrant South Bay with its noisy amusement arcades, vibrant fun fairs and thrilling speedboat rides contrasting with the North Bay’s calmer, more nostalgic, pleasures. And on both beaches you can experience the traditional joys of donkey rides, fish and chips, and brilliantly coloured chalets – the sorbet shades of those on the North Bay make them among the most photographed in the country. Between the two busy bays towers the Castle Headland, crowned by a medieval castle. Climb the steps to the viewing platform up there for remarkable views of both bays and far beyond, or walk from one to the other – you might even spot a porpoise or two! Scarborough is home to an exceptionally lively cultural scene, too – enjoy shows at the historic seafront Spa complex, the natural amphitheatre of the 8,000seat Open Air Theatre and the world-renowned Stephen Joseph Theatre. The unique circular Rotunda museum, with its exquisite interior, is recognised as an internationally important venue. And there are plenty of galleries and music venues, too, with regularly changing programmes of events.

Bay Watersports

Crescent Gardens Bandstand

Fabulous Filey In 2019, Filey was named as one of the 10 best beaches in the UK in the annual TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice Awards, just a year after the Sunday Times voted it best beach in the country. No wonder Filey’s residents are so proud of their five-mile sweep of unspoiled sands. So huge that no matter how busy it gets it’s never crowded, the family-friendly beach is also popular yearround with dog walkers. The famous Brigg, a spine of rocks snaking out into the sea, is, legend has it, the backbone of a drowned dragon. Check the tide times before you explore the miniature marine worlds of its rock pools, then head up the paths to the clifftop Country Park, which offers unparalleled views plus lovely walks, mini golf and a children’s play area. The town’s lifeboat station is located at the top of the Coble Landing (that’s ‘coble’, referencing the traditional Filey fishing boats, rather than the cobbles underfoot), a slipway fringed by picturesque fishing boats and welcoming cafés and kiosks. From there it’s an easy walk to the promenade that edges the beach, with its naturethemed sculpture trail. The pretty bandstand in the Crescent Gardens is home to a series of brass and silver band concerts throughout the summer, while Glen Gardens has a boating lake and play park for younger members of the family. Nature-lovers can spot migratory birds, dragonflies and great crested newts at Filey Dams Nature Reserve, the largest freshwater marsh in the area. Filey also offers many opportunities for more highoctane pursuits such as kayaking, coasteering and other watersports.

Uncover centuries of history with the new interactive guide, and visit the revamped museum to find out how the Abbey inspired Caedmon, the first named English poet, and Dracula author Bram Stoker. The visitor centre has recently been upgraded and includes a new coffee shop. Stoker and fellow author Lewis Carroll, who also stayed in the town, are among the inspirations for the spectacles that are the annual goth and steampunk festivals – cameras at the ready! Follow in the footsteps of one of the world’s greatest explorers at the Captain Cook Memorial Museum in Grape Lane, where he once lived, or find your sea legs on a trip from Whitby Harbour aboard a 40%-size replica of his famous ship, the Endeavour. Beautiful Pannett Park, which contains in its grounds Whitby Museum and the Pannett Art Gallery, celebrates a big birthday this year - it’s 100 years since the land was bequeathed to the town by philanthropist Robert Elliott Pannett. Whitby has long been famous for producing the world’s best jet, the gemstone which defined Victorian jewellery. There are still many local jet specialists selling both vintage and modern pieces, including W. Hamond, which also has a Museum of Whitby Jet; specimens include the largest piece ever found, no less than 21-feet long! Located in the town’s former workhouse, Whitby’s original escape room, Eskape, gives you one hour to solve its mysteries.

North Yorkshire Moors Railway

‘Rambling through a purple haze of heather in the North York Moors National Park’ came high on a list of unmissable experiences compiled last year by travel experts Lonely Planet. But there’s more to the National Park than the annual late summer spectacle of the heather in bloom, gorgeous though it is. The dense deep green woodlands of Dalby Forest offer a serenity that’s so often missing from modern life, while the wide open space of the moorland bring unparalleled views. There’s plenty for those who like to get the blood pumping, too: Dalby’s mountain bike trails are world class – they’ve been used in the past for the Mountain Bike Cross-Country World Cup – while the Go Ape adventure trail offers thrills among the treetops for all the family. The historic Cleveland Way National Trail takes you from Helmsley to Saltburn-by-the Sea then hugs the coast down to Filey, offering magnificent views of both that heather and the glorious coastline, while the North Yorkshire Moors Railway lets you appreciate the scenery from the nostalgic comfort of a steam train carriage. Traditional market towns such as Helmsley, Pickering, Malton and Kirkbymoorside welcome visitors with great food and drink, historical attractions and a busy and diverse cultural scene. And with three easily accessible Dark Sky Discovery Sites – The Moors National Park Centre, Sutton Bank National Park Centre and Dalby Observatories in Dalby Forest – and its own Dark Skies Festival in late winter, the National Park is a paradise for stargazers.

COASTAL VILLAGES

Some of the UK’s favourite seaside villages are to be found on the short stretch of coastline between Saltburn-by-the-Sea and Filey, amid landscape that changes dramatically from vertiginous cliffs to gentler sands the further south you get. Robin Hood’s Bay

 things  to do

Coasting along Runswick bay

Staithes

In recent years, Staithes has become famous, nationally and internationally, for its superb Festival of Arts & Heritage; each September, artists from far and wide take over shops and homes in the village to transform them into pop-up galleries.

Runswick Bay

On a coast with more than its fair share of picturesque villages, Runswick Bay is one of the prettiest – take a walk through its red-roofed cottages to a fossil-rich beach.

Sandsend

Make like a duck: if ever there was a perfect place for a paddle, it’s Sandsend, where two freshwater becks run into the sea dividing a perfect sandy beach.

Robin Hood’s Bay

Perhaps the best-loved of all the Yorkshire Coast villages, Robin Hood’s Bay has a rich history reflected in a mosaic believed to be one of the longest in the country and depicting a timeline of the village’s events.

The 50-odd-mile long stretch of the Yorkshire Coast boasts three of this country’s most famous resorts, but there’s more to this coast - scattered along it, all just a few miles apart, is a string of fabulous and friendly villages, each with its own very distinct character. However you like to spend your precious time off, you’ll find a coastal community to fascinate you. Art lovers will enjoy Staithes, once home to the famous Staithes Group, a sort of Newlyn of the north, and an artistic tradition continued to this day in the annual Arts & Heritage Festival. History buffs can find out about smuggling at Robin Hood’s Bay, and the intriguing alum industry at Ravenscar. Cayton Bay is home to great surfing. And if you just want a picturesque village base alongside a beautiful beach for relaxing, rockpooling or sandcastle-buildilng, look no further than Port Mulgrave, Runswick Bay or Sandsend. The rich natural beauty, fascinating history and thriving culture of the many villages of the Yorkshire Coast will bring you back again and again.

Hunt for fossils at Boggle Hole Like much of this fossil-rich Jurassic coast, Boggle Hole is a magnet for palaeontologists – and with a rather swish and very affordable Youth Hostel alongside, no wonder The Sunday Times recently named it as second best beach in the UK.

Ravenscar

Home to a flourishing colony of seals, and the alum works, once an important part of this country’s fabric dyeing industry, and now a fascinating National Trust site.

MARITIME HERITAGE

The call of the sea is a powerful one for our island nation – we all feel it at some point…

Captain Cook statue, Whitby

DiscoverYorkshireCoast.com


For centuries now, we’ve gone down to the sea in ships, for commerce, for war, for exploration – and sometimes just for fun. Our Yorkshire coast has great stories of maritime derring-do to tell.

Big fish

Coble together

In association with Seafish, which supports the UK seafood industry, the Whitby Fish and Ships Festival in May guarantees a whale of a time over a weekend of lively events based around the history of fishing and its importance to our national cuisine. Expect celebrity chefs, exhibitions, workshops, demos by local fishermen showing off their impressive skills, a seafood trail, and more.

You can still find a few fine working examples of Filey’s distinctive fishing boat, the coble, reminiscent of Viking longboats, on the Coble Landing slipway which leads into the sea. And find out more about Filey’s rich maritime past at the town’s delightful museum, which pays the local town council one devil’s toenail, otherwise knowns as a Gryphaea fossil, for its annual upkeep.

Smuggle up

Explorers and whalers

Climb the steep streets of Robin Hood’s Bay to unlock the secrets of its past as the busiest smuggling community on the Yorkshire coast. Contraband including such prized items as tea, gin, rum, brandy and tobacco were smuggled into the county from the continent through its boltholes and hidden passages.

Whitby’s most famous son, Captain James Cook (or rather, his statue) surveys the town from its towering West Cliff, next to the famous Whalebone Arch. Born at Marton, near Middlesbrough, as a youth he was a draper’s apprentice in Staithes and a trainee with a Whitby shipping firm. Find out more about him and

Scarborough Harbour

his exploits at The Captain Cook and Staithes Heritage Centre in Staithes, and the Captain Cook Memorial Museum on Whitby’s Grape Lane, in the house where he once lodged. And there’s plenty more seafaring memorabilia at the beautiful Whitby Museum including from the 19th century whaling industry.

All aboard Visit Scarborough’s Maritime Heritage Centre, just up the hill from the seafront, for a real insight into a community which has always earned its living from the sea. There are still plenty of working fishing boats in the harbour alongside the pleasure craft. And take a stroll along the 18th century Vincent Pier to the lighthouse – it was shelled when German battlecruisers attacked Scarborough in November 1914, causing the first British civilian deaths of World War I.

Sealed with a kiss Seals hold a special place in all our hearts, and there are plenty of opportunities to spot them off our coast. They pop their heads up fairly regularly in the harbours at Scarborough and Whitby – but probably the best views are to be had at Ravenscar, where there are colonies of both common and grey seals. The super-cute common seal pups can be seen in June and July, the grey in November – but for both your own safety and theirs, please respect them and keep your distance, and your dog on its lead, ideally taking a boat trip from Whitby for the best views.

Whale of a time Spectacular humpback, minke, sei, fin and pilot whales are often spotted off our shores, as are several species of porpoise and dolphin. Yorkshire Coast Nature and Three Sisters Sea

Trips run whale-watching cruises out of Staithes, or join a Whitby Whale Watching trip into the blue yonder.

Birds and stars The Yorkshire Coast is a mecca for bird-watchers. Filey’s rocky peninsula the Brigg, is an SSSI and a haven for migrating birds in the autumn. Nearby, Filey Dams Nature Reserve is a freshwater marsh cared for by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust – look out for birds, small mammals, plants, insects and amphibians, including great crested newts in nationally important numbers. And when darkness falls, keep looking up. The clear skies and low light pollution levels of the North York Moors make it one of the best places in the country for stargazing. The National Park’s dazzling Dark Skies Festival in February is getting bigger and better every year.

Purple splendour It’s a sight to behold – the moorland in the North York Moors National Park turns pinky-purple in late summer and early autumn when the heather blooms. You might want to check out some local heather honey, too.

Natural habitat At the north-eastern border of the North York Moors, near Scarborough, you enter the top of the famous Yorkshire Nature Triangle. This remarkable area, which includes the Vale of York, the Humber Estuary and, within easy reach of Scarborough and Filey, the famous RSPB reserve at Bempton, offers a huge range of varied wildlife-watching opportunities.

Not-so-wild days out Prefer your encounters with nature more contained? Coastal explorers Hidden Horizons offer stargazing, rock pooling, fossil hunting and dinosaur footprint days. At Scarborough’s Sea Life Sanctuary, you can meet local denizens of the deep as well as more exotic sea creatures such as turtles, octopus, penguins and giant Japanese spider crabs. The National Centre for Birds of Prey at Helmsley, a few miles inland, is home to the largest collection of raptors in the north of England. Or visit the gallery of world famous wildlife artist, photographer and naturalist Robert Fuller at his studio in Thixendale, near Malton.
