Health, wellbeing & tranquillity These days, we all know that getting outdoors is super-important to our health and wellbeing, whether that’s an ozone-rich stroll on a golden beach, a windswept and challenging moorland hike, or a day of ecotherapy with what the Japanese call ‘shinrin yoku’ – forest bathing, or simply spending time being calm and reflective amongst the trees. Weave into those days a wellbeing experience or two at a local spa or retreat, and you’ll be raring to go when you get back to your everyday life, whatever it holds.

History & heritage

Outdoor activities

Visit one of our many unique heritage sites to lose yourself in history and find out how people lived in the past – the ruins of Whitby Abbey and Scarborough Castle dominate this stretch of coastline, but there are plenty of other, more intimate, historic venues to visit.

There can be few better ways of escaping the day-to-day than by heading for the great outdoors. Head out for a relaxing stroll on a breezy beach or turn your eyes heavenwards to take in the stars in our dark skies. Or push your body to its limits with the high-adrenaline thrills of coasteering or surfing, or a clifftop hike – the Cleveland Way National Trail offers some of the best coastal walking in the country. You could even take an invigorating horseback ride down one of our fabulous expanses of beach.

An afternoon in one of our many art galleries or an evening in a coastal theatre is the perfect way to find experiences and points of view outside your usual, setting the synapses firing and rejuvenating your thinking.

Walk the coast The Cleveland Way

Starting on the western side of the North York Moors National Park at Helmsley, the Cleveland Way National Trail takes walkers right across the moors to Saltburnby-the-Sea, then down the coastal path to Filey, taking in some of the most spectacular scenery in the country along the way. The 109-mile (175 km) route was officially opened in May 1969 – so recently celebrated its 50th birthday – and was the second recognised National Trail in England and Wales. It’s suitable for anyone who’s reasonably fit – find out more here: nationaltrail.co.uk/en_GB/trails/cleveland-way

Accommodation We all like to escape from the norm – can there be anything nicer than waking up in crisp clean sheets and knowing that you’ve got a whole day ahead of you with no one to please but yourself? From a glamping pod or a yurt beneath the stars to a boutique B&B or luxury high-end hotel with full spa facilities – you’ll find accommodation to suit your needs and wants on the Yorkshire Coast.

Sport We’re all very aware these days that physical and mental wellbeing are inextricably linked, and there’s nothing like a day of sport to send you off to bed ready for a night of restorative sleep. From the gentler pursuits of golf to the high-octane joys of surfing, you’ll find plenty to challenge you and tire you out, in the most enjoyable of ways, on the sporting Yorkshire Coast.

We’ve a history of exploring on this coast, including the great adventures of Captain Cook and the whaling vessels that criss-crossed the globe. But there’s still so much for you to discover on our home territory, without heading halfway round the world!

Explorers & smugglers Follow in the footsteps of Captain Cook, who was born at Marton near Middlesbrough and held apprenticeships in both Staithes and Whitby. He’s celebrated in the former at the Captain Cook and Staithes Heritage Centre, and in Whitby at the Captain Cook Memorial Museum on Grape Lane, in the house where he once lived. Whitby was also home to the Scoresbys. Both named William, the father was a successful whaling captain who invented the crow’s nest, the son an intrepid Arctic explorer. On a smaller scale, track the movement of the clever smugglers of Robin Hood’s Bay, who moved illicit goods from the continent from the bottom of the village to the top using a series of tunnels and passageways so cunning, they didn’t see daylight in the process!

On foot… One of the best ways to explore our beautiful coastline is on foot. The historic Cleveland Way is a 110-mile route that will show you the very best of our region, taking you from inland Helmsley across the gorgeous heather-covered North York Moors National Park to Saltburn-by-the-Sea, from whence it’s a spectacular coastal walk down our entire North Yorkshire coast to Filey. Ten years old this year, the White Rose Way starts in Leeds and ends in Scarorough – its final two miles, taking you around Scarborough’s Castle Headland, were once voted the ‘UK’s Most Romantic Walk’.

Sports

The resorts

If you prefer your exploring on two wheels, we offer great cycling opportunities – why else would the Tour de Yorkshire visit our region for so many consecutive years? The 150-mile Moor to Sea Cycle Network connects Scarborough, Whitby, Dalby Forest, Pickering and Great Ayton in a stunning series of moorland, forest and coastal loops along quiet roads, woodland tracks and bridleways.

Three of the UK’s favourite seaside resorts – Scarborough, Whitby and Filey – each with a very different personality, are strung along this wonderful coast. Once you’ve explored them, head to one of the dozens of smaller villages and secluded bays and beaches that punctuate the stretches in between – you’ll find history and heritage, culture and arts as well as outdoor pursuits to suit any taste.

Explore the seas, too, with some watersports – yachting, dinghy sailing, surfing, paddleboarding and coasteering are all popular right along the coast.

Culture There’s more to exploring than just the physical activity – you need to keep your mind sharp and alert, too. Visit one of our many theatres, including Scarborough’s world-famous Stephen Joseph Theatre and the Open Air Theatre, which attracts top-name acts during the summer, or a gallery or historic venue. We’ve plenty of festivals for all interests, too, from sporting events like Scarborough Cricket Festival to the visual feast that is Whitby’s annual Tomorrow’s Ghosts goth weekend.

Tuck in…

And… relax!

Good food and drink are among life’s most basic and enjoyable pleasures. You’ll find something to suit every taste on the Yorkshire Coast, from – of course! – the best fish and chips you’ll find anywhere, to acclaimed fine dining restaurants.

Life been a bit stressful lately? Why not try a relaxing spa day, or even just a simple one-off treatment, at one of the many wellbeing centres on the coast – from one of Europe’s leading waterparks, complete with infinity pool, to yoga on the beach, you’ll feel like a new person when you leave!

Add to that list great bars and pubs where you can relax with a pint of the best or a glamorous cocktail, and you’ll find no finer recipe for an indulgent foodie break anywhere in the country.

Sleep tight Remember the old days of the seaside B&B, when your landlady kicked you out after breakfast with instructions not to return till teatime? Thankfully, they’re long, long gone! Now those B&Bs have gone upmarket, with boutique values and facilities to cater to every taste. You’ll find them, plus a huge range of other accommodation options, from a glamping campsite complete with shepherds’ huts through luxurious self-catering to the very best of high-end hotels right along the Yorkshire Coast.

Let’s celebrate! Indulge all of your senses at one of our events and festivals, covering… well, just about anything you can think of, really, whether it’s sport or the arts, food or wellbeing, or more niche pursuits like the regular celebrations of all things gothic, steampunk or sci-fi that we hold here on the eclectic Yorkshire Coast…

Spirt of the coast The Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery

When you think about single malt whisky, you’d usually picture the highland and islands of Scotland. But here on the Yorkshire Coast, we have our very own single malt: Filey Bay. The Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery, near Hunmanby, is a tightly-run ship. Its barley is grown locally on the family farm; the water comes from local sources, too. Even the bottling is done in-house. The resulting whisky, in distinctive bottles bearing the logo of a gannet against a foaming sea is a triumph. Find out more, including how to join a distillery tour, at spiritofyorkshire.com

Arts & culture

Health & wellbeing

This coast has long been an inspiration to some of our greatest writers and artists, including Bram Stoker, Lewis Carroll, Lord Tennyson, the Brontës, John Atkinson Grimshaw and the famous Staithes Group. Filmmakers, too, have flocked to the area in recent years, drawn by the stunning scenery that provides such perfect backdrops for their dramas – you can find out more about that on pages 38 and 39 of this publication. Visit some of their haunts to find out what stimulated such creativity – perhaps you’ll end up writing or painting a masterpiece of your very own!

You’ll need a healthy mind and a healthy body to fulfil all those dreams. Exercise is only part of that equation – you need to relax and restore, too, and we’ve plenty of opportunities for that, whether it’s sitting with a good book in a seaside café, wriggling your toes in the warm sand, or spending a day at one of the many spas and wellbeing venues dotted along the coast

Outdoor pursuits What better way to free the mind than by escaping the everyday and getting out and about? A horseback gallop along a wide-open beach; a walk complete with stunning views; or getting out on the deep blue sea – they’ll all give you space and time to think and formulate those dreams that will shape your future. And for the ultimate in dreaming, look up – our dark skies lend themselves to some excellent stargazing.

The stage is set Stephen Joseph Theatre

Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre attracts visitors from all over the world, especially from the States, where it has a loyal following. The 66-year-old theatre was the first in-the-round venue in the UK, and an early team member was the now globally famous playwright Alan Ayckbourn, who joined as an actor and stage manager in 1957. Now in his eighties, he still premieres his new plays at the theatre as part of a lively programme overseen by current Artistic Director, Paul Robinson. For more: www.discoveryorkshirecoast.com

Action heroes With its four state-of-the-art slides, wave pool and splash-and-play area, Alpamare is one of Europe’s best water parks. But it’s not all up-and-at-‘em – for those who just want to relax, there’s a wellness spa, 35°C infinity pool, sun terrace, restaurant and scenic gardens. Wykeham’s North Yorkshire Water Park may not be quite as warm, but the exciting watersports and ‘total wipeout’ inflatable obstacle experience will set your pulse racing – or you can just relax with a spot of fishing. Paddle boarding, kayaking and coasteering are on the menu at Filey’s Bay Watersports, If you prefer highlevel thrills, head for Dalby Forest’s Go Ape to try a Treetop Challenge or Adventure, or ride a Forest Segway; or check your balancing skills on the rope bridges and beams of Scarborough’s North Bay Skytrail Adventure. At Castle Howard, try out ingenious treetop nest structures, rope bridges, slides, nets and climbing equipment at Skelf Island.

Animal magic Flamingo Land Resort, near Malton, is one of the UK’s most visited zoos, with residents including comical penguins, gentle giraffes and fierce tigers. Its theme park features some great rides for all the family, from low-key Muddy Duck Tractor Rides to Zooom, a suspended rollercoaster that recreates the sensation of powered flight. Make friends with farm animal favourites at Playdale Farm Park in Scarborough, which also features outdoor and indoor activities including a zip wire, go-karting and a sandpit with ride-on diggers.

Simple pleasures

Fun for all the family

If this last year has taught us anything, it’s the value of simple pleasures and how life-enhancing they can be.

Dalby’s Great Yorkshire Forest at Dalby offers a great day out for all the family. The Zog the Dragon trail and the Gruffalo Orienteering fun map-reading challenge will keep the little ones entertained, while older children and adults will enjoy tree-climbing and paint-balling at the Dalby Activity Centre.

Scarborough’s lovely Peasholm Park has been a family favourite for generations. Take to the water in a canoe, swan motor launch or dragon pedalo, or to the green for a bit of pitch and putt. Don’t miss the world-famous naval warfare display in the summer. And this year, sign up for an app with information about activities, events and trails in the park, plus an augmented reality game in which you can meet dinosaurs, fairies and other creatures – all at the touch of a button on your phone.

Sporting fans of all ages will enjoy the football/golf hybrid that is – yes! - Footgolf at Killerby, near Cayton, and Pirate Adventure mini golf at Scarborough SEA LIFE.

Time travel

Train of thought

Take your kids on a journey to the past – they’ll love to find out how their forebears used to live. At Ryedale Folk Museum at Hutton-le-Hole in the North York Moors National Park, you’ll see exactly how people used to live in 360 degrees – historic buildings from various eras have been meticulously dismantled and rebuilt within its grounds. And 33 authentic World War II huts house exhibits from both wars at Eden Camp Museum, near Malton – it’s a former PoW camp.

We’re lucky enough to have not one, but two historic railways in the area. The North Yorkshire Moors Railway runs through 24 miles of spectacular countryside between Pickering and Whitby. Scarborough’s North Bay Heritage Railway, one of the country’s most historic seaside miniature railways, has a much shorter route, but equally stunning views. Both offer Santa Specials and illuminated journeys at Christmas.

Scarborough’s unique circular Rotunda Museum is world famous as a geology resource – check out the Ancient Seas exhibition to see what creatures roamed this coastline millions of years ago. Two stately and spectacular ruins – Whitby Abbey and Scarborough Castle, both in the care of English Heritage – host regular themed events for families.

Or get on board with a replica of Captain Cook’s famous HM Bark Endeavour, sailing from Whitby Harbour, or the pirate ship Hispaniola, which sails around Scarborough’s South Bay.

North bay chalets

The original, and still the best Scarborough is the home of the seaside holiday. Visitors have flocked to the town since the 1600s, when the healing potential of the Spa waters was first recognised by a local gentlewoman. People still love the town, and visit year-round. The towering castle overlooks two very different bays, both with Quality Coast Awardwinning beaches. If you’re a thrillseeker, head to the lively South Bay with its twinkling light-filled amusement arcades, joyous fun fairs and thrilling speedboat rides. If you prefer simpler pleasures, the North Bay has a gentler, more nostalgic personality. Both, of course, offer the traditional joys of donkey rides, fish and chips, and Instagram-friendly

Try walking from one bay to the other around the Marine and Royal Albert Drives, which flank the headland (or take an opentopped bus, of course) – you might spot a peregrine, a porpoise or even a dolphin! Scarborough has an exceptionally lively cultural scene. There's yearround entertainment at both the Stephen Joseph Theatre and the busy YMCA Theatre. The unique circular Rotunda Museum is recognised as an internationally important venue, and its sister venue, Scarborough Art Gallery, has an important permanent collection alongside regular visiting exhibitions. There are plenty of other galleries and music venues in the town, too.

Fabulous Filey Filey is really all about the beach. It earned it a top ten spot in the list of the UK’s 10 best beaches in the 2019 annual TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice Awards, while in 2018 the Sunday Times voted it the best beach in the country. It’s a great place to escape from the rough and tumble of everyday life, perfect for family days out, dog walks, a snooze in a deckchair, or, for the more adventurous, watersports including sailing, kayaking and coasteering. Take a stroll along the famous Brigg – be sure to check the tide times first: you don’t want to get caught out – then head up the steep cliffside paths to the Country Park. You can see right across the beautiful bay, enjoy the children’s play area, mini golf and the Dragon Ring stone circle.

Or wander back along the beach towards the town. You’ll find the famous Coble Landing, where you can find out about the history of the RNLI at the lifeboat station, admire the local ‘cobles’ – traditional fishing boats – or grab coffee and cake or a bacon butty from one of the many cafés and kiosks. Just beyond that is the promenade, with its naturethemed sculpture trail, and you can head into the town centre, where you’ll find many traditional, family-run independent shops. Beautiful Glen Gardens, particularly pretty in the autumn, is a haven for the younger members of the family, with its boating lake and play park. And just two miles away, find the pretty village of Hunmanby, home to Yorkshire’s first whisky distillery.

Magical Whitby With its Blue Flag beach fringed by colourful beach huts, it’s easy to see why Whitby is such a popular choice for families. But there’s so much more on offer at Whitby than just a traditional seaside experience. Dramatic Whitby Abbey is famous the world over as the backdrop to Dracula’s first steps on English soil, but that’s only a tiny part of the rich tapestry of its history. Find out more with its new interactive guide and revamped museum. The legacies of Dracula author Bram Stoker and Alice writer Lewis Carroll, another Whitby visitor, can be seen in the town’s annual goth and steampunk festivals – a visual feast where you can only expect the unexpected. The Captain Cook Memorial Museum in Grape Lane celebrates one of the world’s greatest explorers – and

Pannett Art Gallery you’ll shiver as you realise that you’re actually walking in his footsteps: he once lived in the building. Fashionistas will want to visit one of the many jet specialists selling both vintage and modern pieces – Whitby is famous as the place to find the world’s best examples. Best known is W. Hamond, which also has a Museum of Whitby Jet: exhibits include a piece that, at 21-feet long, is the largest ever found. And Whitby is a magnet for food lovers, too – not just the fish and chips (although you’ll find plenty of those, including the award-winning Magpie Cafe, Quayside and Trenchers), but also a wide range of tearooms, cafes and restaurants. And don’t forget to visit Fortune’s, near the foot of the 199 steps – this must-visit smokehouse has been producing delicious kippers since 1872.

Go on a fascinating voyage through time on the only full-size replica of Captain James Cook’s famous ship, the HM Bark Endeavour.

Whitby Abbey

The historic Abbey on Whitby’s East Cliff can be seen for miles around. The gothic ruins inspired the first named English poet, Caedmon and, of course, Bram Stoker, the author of Dracula.

199 steps

Take a deep breath and start the climb to St Mary’s Church and the Abbey, where the views will take that breath away. We promise there are 199 steps, but we know you’ll count anyway, just in case!

Whitby Coastal Cruises and Whale Watching

It’s garlanded with intriguing communities, each one waiting to welcome you. If history is your thing, you’ll love Ravenscar, once the site of a major alum works, so essential to the textile industry, and Robin Hood’s Bay, rife with smuggling in the 18th century. If

Cayton Bay offers great experiences for surfers. And of course, if you’re just looking for a relaxing holiday head to Sandsend or Runswick Bay, or for fossil hunting and exploration, make for Port Mulgrave.

5 things to do

It was The Times’ 2020 beach of the year – the respected newspaper described it as ‘close to perfection’, recommending ‘fossilhunting and rock-pooling on the seemingly endless sands’. And they loved the Hob Holes, a series of beachside caves once believed to be homes to hobgoblins.

Staithes

Visitors flock to Staithes all year round, but especially in September when the annual Festival of Arts and Heritage is held. Artists across the UK exhibit their work in local shops and homes temporarily transformed into pop-up galleries, plus street theatre, events and food.

Sandsend

A freshwater beck runs into the sea at Sandend, dividing the beach, but shallow enough to easily wade across, making it a great base for a fun-filled family holiday. And Sandsend punches above its weight in terms of great cafes and restaurants.

Robin Hood’s Bay

The trek down the steep hill (remember you have to come back up again!) is part of the charm of this tumbling village, making it one of the most photographed in the country. Don’t forget to stop at one of the many independent cafes, restaurants and shops on the way down.

Ravenscar

Stunning views, a seal colony, and a fascinating history – you can still find traces of what was once planned to be a major holiday resort to rival nearby Scarborough and Whitby.

DiscoverYorkshireCoast.com


The perfect escape From the annual late summer spectacle of the purple heather in bloom, to the deep green woodlands of Dalby Forest, the North York Moors is the perfect place to escape. It's a mecca for stargazers, too: along with its 'sister' national park, the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors National Park was recently designated as an International Dark Sky Reserve, joining an exclusive global family of Dark Sky Places. You’ll find great stargazing opportunities at the Moors National Park Centre, the Dark Skies Observatory and nature hub at Sutton Bank National Park Centre, and Dalby Observatories in Dalby Forest. Each year, the two Yorkshire National Parks team up to present a fabulous Dark Skies Festival - this year’s will be themed around Nature at Night. At Sutton Bank, there are two new purpose-built allweather cycling tracks: a pump track featuring banked turns and rollers; and a family-friendly trail doubling as a cyclocross track for competitive events. The 2.5k family trail also provides a longer and wider start to the existing Cliff Trail enabling families to ride side-by-side through woodland, as well as better access for disabled cyclists using hand crank cycles. Dalby’s mountain bike trails are world class and the Go Ape adventure trail offers treetop thrills for all the family. The Moors National Park Centre has a brand-new visitor experience exploring the Land of Iron: a fascinating insight into the history and habitats of the Moors including the dramatic story of Victorian ironstone extraction - the ‘gold rush’ of the moors. Find spectacular views on The Cleveland Way National Trail which takes you from Helmsley up to Saltburnby-the Sea then down the coast to Filey, or aboard a North Yorkshire Moors Railway which runs through some otherwise inaccessible countryside.

Once a bustling village at the centre of the ironstone industry, and set amongst some of the most magnificent countryside to be found anywhere, Rosedale Abbey is the home of internationally renowned glass artists Gillies Jones – you can watch them blowing glass at certain times of year. The village is also the start point for a popular annual walking festival.

Goathland

Hop off the North Yorkshire Moors Railway at Goathland, and you’ll find yourself in very familiar surroundings – Goathland is the location for the fictional Aidensfield in the hugely popular period police drama, Heartbeat. A three-mile circular walk starting in the village takes you past the gorgeous Mallyan Spout, a spectacular waterfall.

Egton Bridge

Visit Egton Bridge in August to see one of the area’s longest-standing and most famous traditions: the oldest surviving gooseberry show in the country, established in 1800. The show is organised by the Egton Bridge Old Gooseberry Society.

Danby

Located in the northernmost reaches of the National Park, Danby is where you’ll find The Moors National Park Centre – picnic on the lawn, take a look at the permanent exhibition about the moorland habitat, or visit the beautiful Inspired by… gallery, with its regularly changing exhibitions of art inspired by the Centre’s glorious surroundings.

Who can resist the call of the sea? Our island nation has long produced some of the world’s greatest seafarers, whether they’re explorers, fishermen or yachtsmen. We Brits have always been drawn to the sea. If you live on the coast, it’s a source of income, of recreation – and sometimes, of threat. There’s plenty of ways on the Yorkshire Coast to find out more...

The Dunkirk Experience Coble up Visitors have enjoyed pleasure trips aboard Scarborough’s Regal Lady for decades – but how many of them knew, that as the Oulton Belle, it was one of the brave Little Ships of Dunkirk? Berthed in Scarborough Harbour, it’s now a free-to-board experience, with Dunkirk memorabilia and a cinema room. There is also a 12-seater passenger boat, the Spirit of Dunkirk, in which you can take a trip round the bay while finding how it felt to be part of the evacuation.

Fish & ships Whitby Fish and Ship Festival brings fishy fun for all the family with a weekend of lively events exploring the history of fishing and its importance to our national economy. Celebrity chefs, street theatre, exhibitions, workshops, demos by local fishermen showing off their skills, a seafood trail, and much more...

A smuggler’s cove Robin Hood’s Bay was once the most active smuggling community on this coast. You can still find the hidden passageways and tunnels that locals used to move contraband around – it’s said that an illicit item could travel from the shore to the top of the village without ever seeing the open air! Find out more at the village’s Bay Museum and Old Coastguard Station Visitor Centre.

The sturdy coble was a mainstay of Filey’s fishing industry – you can still find a few working boats on the Coble Landing slipway. And Filey’s rich and varied maritime past is on display at the town’s delightful volunteer-run museum.

Explorers & whalers The spirit of Captain Cook looms large on this coast. Find out more about the man who was arguably the country’s greatest explorer 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. Whitby was once a world centre of the whaling trade – there’s plenty of fascinating background on that chapter of its history at Whitby Museum.

All hands on deck Scarborough’s Maritime Heritage Centre offers a fascinating insight into the town’s seafaring history and traditions. Visit the working harbour, where you’ll find an active, but scarred, lighthouse – it came under attack from German battlecruisers in November 1914, when the bombardment of the town caused the first British civilian deaths of World War I and prompted a major recruitment drive.

Seals & whales

Honey & habitat

Who doesn’t love the surprise of spotting a snout and a pair of big dark eyes bobbing about in the water? Seals are fairly common along our coastline, regularly venturing into the harbours at Scarborough and Whitby. But probably the best place to see them is at Ravenscar, home to colonies of both common and grey seals. Common seal pups can be seen in June and July, and grey in November, and their undeniable cuteness makes you want to pick them up and cuddle them – but for both your own safety and theirs, please don’t! Keep your distance, keep your dog on its lead, and enjoy the natural spectacle.

The North York Moors National Park turns pinky-purple in late August and is one of this area’s great natural spectacles, as the heather blooms and the landscape turns pinky-purple. It makes for some delicious heather honey, too.

Further out in the water, keep your eyes peeled for whales – humpback, minke, sei, fin and pilot whales are found around here – porpoises and dolphins. Both Yorkshire Coast Nature and Three Sisters Sea Trips offer whale-watching cruises from Staithes, or join a Whitby Whale Watching trip – look out for the yellow boats!

Stars & birds Reach for the stars! Ultra clear skies and the lack of light pollution over the North York Moors National Park make it one of the best places in the country for stargazing. February’s Dark Skies Festival, in collaboration with the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this year celebrates nocturnal wildlife. And our skies are full of birds, as well as stars. Filey Brigg is an SSSI and an important rest stop for migrating birds in the autumn. Filey Dams Nature Reserve is a hidden gem of freshwater marshland in the care of the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. Birds, small mammals and dragonflies compete for your attention – you might even spot a rare great crested newt: they’re resident in nationally important numbers.

And just a little way south, you’ll find the Yorkshire Nature Triangle, encompassing Flamborough, Spurn Point and the Wolds. This remarkable area is within easy reach of Scarborough and Filey and includes the famous RSPB reserve at Bempton, home to puffins, razorbills, guillemots and the largest mainland colony of gannets in the country – take your ear defenders in mating season!

Fossil & turtles If you prefer your nature a little less wild, there are plenty of opportunities to get on board the Yorkshire Coast nature train.

Coastal explorers Hidden Horizons offer dark skies events, rock pooling, fossil hunting, bushcraft, foraging and dinosaur footprint days. Scarborough’s SEA LIFE Sanctuary brings you face to face with local sea creatures, familiar faces such as turtles, octopus and penguins, and some real exotica – don’t miss the giant Japanese spider crabs. At Helmsley, towards the western border of the North York Moors National Park, you’ll find the National Centre for Birds of Prey, home to the largest collection of raptors in northern England. And world famous wildlife artist, photographer and naturalist Robert Fuller works from his studio in Thixendale, near Malton.

Oliver's Mount

Golf

Rugby

Oliver’s Mount

With two fine golf clubs at Scarborough’s North and South Cliffs, plus others at Whitby and Filey, you won’t be short of places to play a round while enjoying spectacular sea views. All four will be host courses for this year’s famous Scarborough Golf Week: this September event promises to be extra special this year, as the festival celebrates its centenary. Just a few minutes’ drive inland from both Scarborough and Filey, Ganton Golf Club was founded in 1891 and is ranked in the top 80 courses in the world. It features over 100 bunkers, including one described by the great golf writer Bernard Darwin as ‘the vastest and generally most gorgeous bunker… on any inland course’.

Rugby fans will enjoy the excellent play and top class facilities at the 90-year-old Scarborough RUFC’s new home at Silver Royd – it’s one of the best amateur rugby centres in the country. The club has four senior mens’ sides and a senior womens’ side, with enthusiastic youth groups spread across 13 different age groups including micro rugby for the under-6s. Whitby Rugby Club prides itself on its friendly welcome, and currently plays in the Durham & Northumberland League Division 1 and the Teesside Social League. It also has an active junior section with teams from under-7s to under-16s.

It’s been described as ‘a miniature TT by the seaside’: Scarborough’s Oliver’s Mount is home to England’s only natural road racetrack. This stunning venue has attracted some of the biggest names in racing over the years, from Barry Sheene in the 1970s – the circuit still hosts a weekend event named in his honour – to Ian Hutchinson, Guy Martin and Ryan Farquhar today. The sheer spectacle of the mass race starts followed by the exciting action along twisting public roads make this an unparalleled experience for road racing fans – it can attract crowds of 50,000-plus.

Cricket

Football

Surfing

Scarborough and cricket go together like Test Match Special and cake. The annual late summer Scarborough Cricket Festival has taken place at the club’s historic North Marine Road ground since 1876, a 145-year run broken only by the war years, and brings fans from across the world to enjoy an entertaining mix of first-class county cricket, one-day fixtures and invitation XIs. And there’s more to Scarborough Cricket Club than just the festival – you can catch first class county matches there throughout the season.

With two teams in the Northern Premier League Premier Division, the North Yorkshire Coast isn’t short of great footballing action. With its unique Italian-style strip, you won’t miss Whitby Town FC. The club rose up from the lower sections of nonleague football during the 1990s, winning the Northern Premier League First Division on the way as well as the Northern League Cup six times. Scarborough Athletic FC is a club on the up – it sprang from the ashes of the historic Scarborough FC and moved to a spanking new ground, the Flamingoland Stadium, in 2017.

There’s some great surfing locations along this coast, including at Whitby, Scarborough and Cayton Bay – but you’ll have to be very good friends with a local surfer to find out where their ‘secret spots’ are! Each October, the Scarborough Surf Festival offers free surfing, swimming and lifesaving activities run by qualified instructors for both experienced surfers and beginners. The festival hub in Scarborough’s North Bay provides a range of food, drink and surfing merchandise stalls, plus information on caring for our precious coastal environment and displays of modern and classic VWs.

Saint Maud

The Tide

Are you ready for your close-up? Hotly tipped for awards galore during 2021, last year’s must-see horror was Saint Maud. Many of the scenes in this boldly original, heart-stoppingly terrifying psychological chiller were set on Scarborough seafront, with director Rose Glass praising the resort’s ‘magic combination’ of attractions. Other great movies with scenes set on the Yorkshire Coast include: • Daniel Day-Lewis’s final movie Phantom Thread, which saw the great actor in Lythe’s beautiful churchyard, and in Robin Hood’s Bay and Staithes • A Chorus of Disapproval, starring Jeremy Irons, Anthony Hopkins, Jenny Seagrove and PatsyKensit, was an adaptation of Alan Ayckbourn’s play, and set in hisadopted home town • Little Voice, starring Michael Caine, Ewan McGregor and Jane Horrocks, was set in Scarborough • Scarborough, starring Jodhi May and Jessica Barden, was set – well, guess where! • The film adaptation of Vera Brittain’s Testament of Youth, starring Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Taron Egerton and Colin Morgan, featured Robin Hood’s Bay and Cloughton Wyke, just north of Scarborough • The Runaways, starring Mark Addy, showed off various locations across the North York Moors and Whitby • Possession, starring Gwyneth Paltrow, restored Whitby and Boggle Hole to 19th century splendour.

The Saint Maud team aren’t alone in spotting the haunting nature of this coast. The Sherlock gang, including Steven Moffatt and Mark Gatiss, visited Whitby for their recent adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula for the BBC and Netflix. And the singularly terrifying BBC drama Remember Me, starring national treasure Michael Palin, was filmed in Scarborough a few years ago.

BBC comedy Scarborough, starring Jason Manford and Strictly star Catherine Tyldesley was filmed in, obviously, Scarborough. The Beeb made good use of their shiny new drones to get some stunning shots of the town from previously unfamiliar viewpoints.

Family favourites You can still follow the adventures of Old Jack and Salty the Dog from Old Jack’s Boat on CBeebies Radio – the original TV series was filmed in Staithes. BAFTA-nominated CBBC show All at Sea was located in Scarborough.

Some of the UK’s favourite dramas were filmed on and around the Yorkshire Coast. Nostalgic police series Heartbeat still lends its name to the North York Moors between Goathland and Whitby, and popular hospital spin-off The Royal was filmed in Scarborough. Kay Mellor set series three of her comedy drama The Syndicate in Scarborough. And keep an eye out for some treats coming soon – recent visitors to the area have included Mary Berry and the Hairy Bikers cooking on the coast; Susan Calman filming an episode of Scenic Road Trip; and Bob Mortimer and Paul Whitehouse on location in Staithes for series four of Gone Fishing.

Malton

True north Head up the coast from Staithes and you’ll find Saltburn-by-the-Sea. This delightful seaside town has a charming Victorian pleasure pier, the last of its kind on the Yorkshire Coast, and a magnet for photographers. It’s a steep climb from the pier to the town itself, but you can do the journey in style in one of the world’s oldest water-powered funicular railways, complete with stained glass windows.

Due south

Westward ho!

Directly below our region sits the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds, heralded by the ‘Gateway to the Wolds’, the pretty village of Hunmanby, just two miles from Filey. The Wolds’ rolling landscapes and huge skies are a regular inspiration to artists, including no less than David Hockney – you can visit the locations of some of his most famous paintings. They also make the region popular with walkers and cyclists – trails include the Wilberforce Way, the Wolds Way and the Minster Way.

Our east coast location means we’re used to dramatic sunrises – but head towards the sunset and you’ll find plenty to keep you busy. Busy Malton is known as the ‘Food Capital of Yorkshire’, and is famous for its regular food markets, including the spring Food Lovers Festival and the autumn Harvest Food Festival. Set amidst the glorious Howardian Hills, nearby Castle Howard will be familiar from many its many film and TV appearances, including its transformation to Brideshead in Brideshead Revisited, a Bollywood movie and a recent Arctic Monkeys video!

There’s Elizabethan splendour at two of the area’s most historic country houses, Burton Agnes Hall and Burton Constable Hall – at the latter, don’t miss the skeleton of a sperm whale, stranded on a nearby beach in 1825 and reputed to be part of Herman Melville’s inspiration when he wrote Moby Dick. At the welcoming little town of Pocklington, find glorious Burnby Hall Gardens, home to one of two National Water Lily collections, and well worth a visit in the summer when the water lilies are at their most spectacular.

And at the western edge of the North York Moors National Park, find the stunning market town of Helmsley, home to so many tempting independent shops and restaurants, a thriving arts centre and, nearby, Nunnington Hall, a lovely manor house with an organic garden and an exciting programme of exhibitions showing the work of big name artists including, recently, Grayson Perry.
