Leisure Activities on the Yorkshire Coast

Fishing, cycling, walking, rock pooling, horse riding, bird watching, surfing and much more – you can find it all on the Yorkshire coast.

The variety is as drastic as the change in landscape from crazy golf through to an 18 hole cliff top course. Climbing, segways, bush craft, gliding, tree top and beam courses. Steam trains, land trains, open top buses and boat trips. From heritage trails and guided dinosaur walks through to moorland hikes and the stunning 110mile Cleveland Way.

And wherever you choose to base yourself, the rest of it is within two hours’ drive – so

if you fancied exploring a tumbling clifftop fishing village packed with quirky shops and galleries in the morning, doing a spot of bird-watching in the afternoon, followed by an overnight bush craft experience – it can all be yours!
