Introduction

Overview Video of North Yorkshire
Description

Welcome to North Yorkshire's, Coast and Seaside...

North of the caravans at Filey lies the Queen of the Yorkshire coast, Scarborough. An elegant spa and resort, with two sandy bays, Scarborough has good entertainment, a small fishing fleet and plenty of accommodation. Scarborough Castle, dating from the 12th century, crowns the headland, below which the old townís streets tumble down to the harbour side on South Bay. Scarborough was founded by the Vikings as Skaroaborg in the tenth century, later hosting Scarborough Fair for 500 years. The town was bombarded by German ships in the First World War, having an enormous effect on public opinion, as it brought the war to civilians.

Smugglers were active in the picturesque little village of Robin Hoodís Bay, a steep valley running from the moors down to the sea, crowded with cottages and shops. Further along the cliffs is the sandstone ruin of Whitby Abbey, overlooking the little port of Whitby. It was from here that Captain Cook set sail in the Endeavour for Cape Horn and Tahiti in 1768. Whitby harbour, on the mouth of the river Esk, is surrounded by the steep alleyways of the town, leading up to the Abbey and the parish church of St Maryís.

Another steep road down to the sea can be found at Staithes, where James Cook was employed as a grocerís apprentice. Just to the north is Boulby Cliff, at 700 feet one of the highest sea cliffs in England. Saltburn by the Sea is a Victorian resort, with Englandís northernmost pier and the oldest water-balanced cliff tramway in the country, still operational. At the end of the bay lies Redcar, in the midst of an eight mile stretch of sandy beach, leading to the mouth of the River Tees, behind which are the industrial areas of Teesside.
