The Yorkshire coast

United Kingdom
By Dmitry Petrounin Dmitry Petrounin Section editor Profile

Discover The Yorkshire coast

The Yorkshire coast has several charming towns, including Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay (allegedly of little relation to the heroic outlaw himself) and Scarborough. Continue to the end of Flamborough to discover the numerous species of birds which nest in the cliffs bordering the shore, such as northern gannets and black-legged kittiwakes.
