Around Robin Hood's Bay

Robin Hood’s Bay is a picturesque coastal village with a maze of twisting streets winding through the village and down to the beach. It is famously renowned as an old smuggler’s haunt; the main street through the village actually comes to an end in the sea. It is possible to walk the 3 miles to Ravenscar at low tide, exploring the rock pools and fossils but keep an eye on the sea as the tide turns swiftly and you could get cut off and trapped by the incoming sea.

 End Of The Wainwright Coast To Coast Walk

Wainwright published his coast to coast pictorial guide in 1973 and it has since become the most popular long distance path in England. Passing through a number of conveniently placed small towns and villages, the entire route can be broken down into a series of manageable walks averaging 16 miles a day over 12 days. Including travelling time to and from the walk, it can be fitted in a fortnight's break.

 Eating Out In Robin Hood's Bay

Whatever your tastes, there is a wide selection of places to eat in the village itself, a restaurant, or bistro, serving locally caught fish and farm sourced meats, bar meals, fish and chip shops and tea rooms all can be found nearby and are usally accompanied by the glorious view across the bay.
