Art, Culture & History

The Yorkshire Coast has a dense and rich history.

The area was home to one of the world’s most important Mesolithic archaeological sites before the Romans arrived to build roads and signal stations, while the Vikings marauded here, leaving an idelible mark.

In the Middle Ages, monasteries and castles were founded, while The Victorians built railway lines to our coastal resorts, travelling here to enjoy the seaside in their thousands. 

Every inch of our glorious coastline has a story to tell and we can't wait to share it with you.
