Seasonal Events on the Yorkshire Coast

No matter the season, there will be an array of events being held throughout the Yorkshire Coast. Whether it's the annual Skipping Day on Scarborough Seafront or Romantic Breaks for Valentine's Day! Don't forget when the Easter Bunny comes out to play, hiding his Easter eggs around the coast.

Throughout the summer months there is a vast array of events happening up and down the coast, really helping you enjoy those summer holiday months! Whether your sunning it up on the beach or taking a train ride through the North York Moors. Then the nights start to creep up on us, scary stories being told, visiting the Spooky Abbey, and getting all dressed up for trick or treat! But don't forget remember remember the 5th of November!

But then the snow starts falling, and everyone starts getting into the Christmas spirit, with Christmas lights getting turned on, the lighthristmas parades and then ending the calendar year with a big bang!

There is something for everyone!
