Family & Seaside Attractions on the Yorkshire Coast

Child and baby building sand castles

Families have been holidaying on the Yorkshire Coast for centuries now, ever since the Spa waters in Scarborough were discovered in the 1600s and the town became famous as one of the world’s first holiday resorts.

And whether your children are young, and want nothing more than to build sandcastles in the sun and eat the occasional ice cream or candyfloss, or older and that bit more adventurous, looking for educational experiences or outdoors living, you’ll find it here. Perfect, too, for young couples looking for a romantic escape, and those whose families have flown the nest and finally have the time to treat themselves to a bit of luxury living.
