Yorkshire Coast

What to do on The Yorkshire Coast

The Yorkshire coast is a world-famous stretch of coastline that runs from the Tees estuary in the north to the Humber estuary in the south.

From Spurn Point to Sandsend, there’s plenty to explore along the beautiful East and North Yorkshire coastline. From Filey’s award-winning beaches and Flamborough Head’s rugged cliffs to Whitby’s historic cobbled streets and Scarborough’s stunning scenery, there’s something for everyone.

Bridlington is known as the lobster capital of Europe and you can watch catches being landed at the town’s harbour. North of Bridlington, in the charming town of Hunmanby you can take a tour at Spirit of Yorkshire, Yorkshire’s first whisky distillery and enjoy the unspoilt charm of the beach at Hunmanby Gap.

Fans of surfing will love Cayton Bay, whilst walkers will enjoy Filey Bay’s five mile stretch of golden beaches and bird watchers marvel at the wildlife at RSPB Bempton Cliffs and Spurn Point.

Hornsea is home to Hornsea Freeport Outlet Village and Yorkshire’s largest fresh water lake, Hornsea Mere, a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest, a Special Protection Area for birds and a tourist attraction offering rowing, sailing, boat trips and fishing.
