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.

Bring the kids to build sandcastles in the sun or enjoy a romantic seaside escape for two; the Yorkshire Coast is the perfect whether you're looking for a family-friendly holiday resort or a spot of luxury living in some truly unique surroundings.
