Robin Hoods Bay
One of the most popular tourist spots along the North Yorkshire coastline, Robin Hoods Bay has a long and proud history and is set in a beautiful rolling natural landscape. This small village lies 5 miles south of Whitby and around 15 miles north of Scarborough and is known predominantly as a fishing and tourist destination today.
Whilst it remains doubtful that the famous hero from Nottingham ever actually visited Robin Hoods Bay himself, the village still boasts an impressive history going back to its creation around 1000AD. As well as a large fishing community, the town was once home to the largest smuggler community on the North Yorkshire coastline. Commodities such as gin, rum, brandy, tobacco and silk passed through the village on its way to markets through Britain, some say through a network of underground tunnels that are rumoured to link the village’s houses together.
Many people also know the village as the end point to the 190 mile coast to coast walking route, starting in St Bees on the West Coast and finishing in Robin Hoods Bay to the East.
Robins Hood Bay Images, Pictures and Photos
As landscape photographers based in North Yorkshire our inspiration at The North Yorkshire Gallery comes from the scenes and landscapes around us. Especially at certain times of the day, the bay at Robin Hoods Bay (or Bay Town, as the locals call it) makes for a truly captivating vista, sitting as it does in a narrow ravine on the instantly recognisable Dinosaur Coast, so called for the fossils that you can find along the coastline and on the beach.
Our gallery of pictures features of some of our favourite images and photos of Robin Hoods Bay, and is meant to showcase some of the village’s unique character and history alongside its natural beauty.
