Discover Yorkshire Coast

From enjoying breath-taking views of unspoilt coastline to exploring vibrant towns and villages with their own unique character or discovering awe-inspiring beauty in the heart of the North York Moors, a visit to the Yorkshire Coast is full of surprises. From a short break to a long, relaxing holiday we have something to meet your every need.

So much to discover and explore

Stretching more than 100 miles from north to south, our unique stretch of coastline is home to a rich history, and we can’t wait to share it with you.

We are home to one of the first seaside resorts in the UK, the historic spa town of Scarborough, as well as dreamy Whitby and the golden sands of Filey. All bursting with everything you’d expect from a seaside holiday and so much more.

For those looking to escape and relax you can explore the many secluded coastal villages dotted along the Yorkshire Coast. Once home to smugglers and profiteers they are now tranquil settlements where you can switch off from modern life and enjoy a break in peace.

During your stay you will also have access to the stunning natural landscape of the North York Moors National Park, with many of our coastal villages located within the boundaries of the National Park itself.

We're celebrating the Year of the coast, find out more here.
