Explore York & East Coast
More than 40 miles of coastline stretch from Saltburn, north of Whitby, to Filey in the south, centred on Robin Hood's Bay. The Cleveland Way National Trail follows the clifftop and gives splendid views. A wide range of habitats is home to all kinds of wildlife, from orchids to nesting birds. The remains of the alum industry and jet and ironstone mining can be seen along the route. The Old Coastguard Station in Robin Hood's Bay is an exhibition and education centre showing how the elements have shaped this part of the coastline. At Ravenscar Coastal Centre an exhibition covers local history, including the story of alum production – Britain's first chemical industry. You can start your walk by taking Coastliner services to either Whitby, Scarborough or Filey. With our Freedom ticket you get get on or off the bus wherever you like.
