This wonderful heritage Yorkshire Coast is choc full of history taking in such things as dinosaurs, Captain James Cook, smugglers, the whaling industry, Victorian jet jewellery, Britains first seaside resort, Dracula and the Gothic capital of the world.

Each coastal town and quaint fishing village has its own distinctive and often mysterious folklore and stories to tell.

From north to south our favourites are Saltburn on Sea, Runswick Bay, Staithes, Sandsend, Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay & Boggle Hole, Ravenscar and Scarborough.

Choose from sandy beaches with donkey rides, kiss me quick hats and sticks of rock with the name running through. Higgledy piggledy old fishing villages with harbours sheltering from crashing waves against high cliffs. The worlds oldest funicular railway, boutique shopping, boat trips, fishing trips, fish and chips, high end dining and the picturesque Cleveland Way coastal walk leading along the coast top paths.

From Danby or Castleton village we just hop on the Esk Valley train which wiggles through the beautiful moors and dales criss crossing the River Esk 14 times before arriving in Whitby train station. It costs about £7 return.
