Yorkshire is one of eight key regions featured on Englandscoast.com. The Yorkshire coast is one of the most dramatic in the UK, with towering cliffs, rocky coves, glorious beaches and wilderness-like stretches of sand dunes. There are bustling resorts including Bridlington, Whitby, Scarborough, Hornsea, Withernsea and Filey, mixed with quaint fishing villages like Flamborough, Staithes and Robin Hood’s Bay and wild coastline in between.
Home to an array of historic buildings, including Whitby Abbey and Scarborough Castle, the county’s coastal heritage is a key draw for visitors.
For nature lovers, the Yorkshire coast is one of the best places to view sea birds in England, as at RSPB Bempton where there are amazing views of thousands of seabirds including puffins and gannets. The region offers stunning scenery including the North York Moors, Yorkshire Wolds, white cliffs at Flamborough Head and the unique extensive sand spit at Spurn Point. Active visitors can enjoy walking and cycling or a range of water sports.
