One of the most popular tourist spots along the North Yorkshire coastline, Robin Hoods Bay has a long and proud history and is set in a beautiful rolling natural landscape.
This small village lies 5 miles south of Whitby, around 15 miles north of Scarborough and is known predominantly as a fishing and tourist destination today. With its coastal countryside walks, wonderful places to eat and drink, family friendly beaches and various ancient legends Robin Hood’s Bay is a magical place that attracts tourists and visitors throughout all seasons. Often referred to as the Dinosaur Coast, due to the many fossils discovered on the beach it is a truly unique location, filled with exciting history and striking scenery.
Robin Hoods Bay’s beach was named one of the top 25 in the world by Passport magazine. The publication described it as a “photographer’s delight”. This charming village features many scenic locations from the incredible cliff-top views and the cobbled streets and houses that have stood for centuries to the fossil filled coast and the rolling gray waters. Some say that walking on the beach can feel like walking through the very legends that account for so much of the village’s unique history and character.
