A Coast with Character

The birthplace of the seaside holiday has its fair share of beautiful beaches, but being Yorkshire, the coast here is naturally brimming with character too – everything from eccentric harbour villages to sweeping headlands humming with birdlife.

Scarborough was Britain’s first seaside resort, and its two sandy beaches are surprisingly diverse. South Bay beach is the traditional one, sheltered, lively and surrounded by all kinds of nostalgic amusements, while North Bay is a little wilder, quieter and well-suited to rockpool adventures and surfing. Between the two it’s got all the family favourites covered.

Many of the golden beaches dotted along Yorkshire’s coastline are linked to traditional resorts, from Bridlington with its donkey rides and beach huts to Filey’s sweeping historic promenade. It’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy the great British seaside experience.

If you prefer low key holidays, there are quieter spots too, like the expansive, empty sands at Cayton Bay.
