Located on the heritage coast of North Yorkshire, England, this fishing village is a perfect weekend getaway spot for you and your family. With lots to discover, Robin Hood’s Bay awaits you. By Divyansh Mehta

Strolling through its narrow streets and alleys, the village gives you an opportunity to experience the history of sailors, press gangs and smugglers that walked these passages years ago. Here are some famous spots you must discover when you visit Robin Hood’s Bay.

1. North Yorkshire And Cleveland Heritage Coast

The North Yorkshire Heritage Coast runs across the North York Moors National Park. The town of Whitby is the cultural centre of the coast and is located in a deep ravine at the opening of the River Esk. One of Northeast Yorkshire’s most popular seaside towns, Whitby features narrow lanes and streets leading to a busy, characterful harbour, fishing trawlers sailing past, lifeboat cruises and lively bars.

2. St. Stephen’s Church

The Old St. Stephen’s church was built in 1822, which has been present on the site since the medieval era. It is an Anglican structure located on a hillside in Fylingdales, overlooking the Robin Hood’s Bay. The church was built using sandstone with a purple slate roof and its interiors are crafted with original Georgian fittings.

3. Saltwick Bay

Saltwick Bay is a north-east facing bay, situated 1.6 km east of the Whitby town. The recommended duration to see the place is for three hours. Tourists can take a stroll along the cliff path with mesmerising views across the North Sea, and go down via a steep path to arrive in this secluded little bay.

4. Whitby Harbour East Lighthouse

Nestled on Ling Hill beyond Saltwick Bay, the lighthouse is a white brick tower, which was designed by James Walker. The lighthouse was electrified in 1976 and started functioning automatically in 1992. Also, the old lighthouse keepers’ cottages are now available to hire by holidaymakers.
