Coastal Villages - Yorkshire's Coastal Towns & Villages

We’re so sorry not to be able to welcome you at the moment but now is not the right time.

It’s important we keep you and our local communities’safe. Many of our businesses remain closed in line with government guidelines. Our public toilets and car parks are also closed and there is no lifeguard cover on our beaches.

Everything will still be here when this is over and we can’t wait to welcome visitors back again, but only when it is safe to do so.

Please help us by playing your part in controlling the virus spread and only come back when we can welcome you safely.


In the meantime please share your treasured memories of visits on the coast with photos from your holidays, please use

Yorkshire lays claim to one of the most beautiful and best-loved coastlines in the country, each one unique with its own charisma and allure. Our smaller towns and villages are some of the prettiest you’ll find anywhere in the world.

At its northern end, the coast is home to picturesque villages clinging precipitously to the cliffs – Staithes, Runswick BayRobin Hood’s Bay and Ravenscar among them – and all in the care of the North York Moors National Park.

Travel further south, and the scenery offers the dramatic chalk cliffs of Flamborough to the serine ocean views at Bempton with their seabird colonies, then gradually becomes gentler as you approach Spurn Head, passing through Barmston, Ulrome, Skipsea and a dozen or so other tiny coastal communities.

You can watch local fisherman at work; go fossil hunting on the Jurassic Coast; take a smugglers tour around Robin Hood's Bay; admire work of artists in Staithes; try rock pooling in Runswick; relax at a beach shack or enjoy a cup of tea in Sandsend.

Don’t be fooled by their wonderful serenity as these thriving coastal communities are full of things to do!
