Welcome to our new Delicious Fish & Chip trail, which we hope will inspire you to take a culinary tour of some of the fish and chip shops and restaurants in the county.

We believe there are some of the finest fish and chip restaurants and take-aways in the world right here in Yorkshire and while we couldn’t fit them all in, we wanted to give visitors a taste of some of the best places for great fish and chips. We are delighted to have the backing of Seafish, the authority on seafood.

The Yorkshire Coast is one of the UK’s most popular seaside destinations, with a diverse blend of white cliffs and designated heritage coast around Flamborough Head and a selection of Britain’s best seaside holiday resorts. This scenic coastline boasts a number of immaculate Blue Flag beaches, including Bridlington, Hornsea, Withernsea, Filey, Scarborough North Bay and Whitby West Cliff – glorious on a warm summer’s day and on a winter afternoon!
