Robin Hood´s Bay Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout North York Moors...

With a maze of tightly-packed houses and the swell of the North Sea in the distance, the village of Robin Hood’s Bay is a picturesque and sometimes dramatic setting for a seaside resort.

The residents once lived solely by fishing and smuggling. The main street was washed away by a great storm in 1780. The impressive sandy bay sweeps several miles to the south, with Ravenscar nestling on the headland.
