Well preserved historic village and harbour at the end of the coast to coast walk, and just a couple of miles outside Whitby. There is no parking down in the harbour area, so it means parking at the top of the hill and walking down (and back too.) Does require a decent level of fitness! Village is quaint, with a couple of pubs and cafes etc, and several gift and antique shops. We visited on a sunny day in October and it was very quiet - I imagine it is rammed in the summer. Tide goes out a long way, exposing a rocky foreshore, and a sandy beach is just a short walk away.

We took the X93 bus from Whitby to Robin Hoods Bay and spent a lovely day up and down the narrow streets. It is worth the effort but could be hard going in busier and hotter months.

Lovely quaint place to visit, but extremely steep, so a good pair of flat shoes are essential. Well worth a visit, it is really pretty.

sure its hilly but a mystical and beautiful location, a little too commercial for my liking, but I guess I was part of that problem.

You park in the car park and walk down the steep hill to a beautiful quaint fishing village. There are pubs, cafes and sandwich shops, gift shops, a sandy beach, National Trust shop and lovely little houses. - then you have to walk back up the steep hill to the car

Lovely old, quaint town. Very steep walk, lots of small, unusual shops (some closed when we visited). A definite must if you are in the area.

Steep walk down from either the bus stop or car park, but the intertwining narrow streets need exploring. Museum very good and the fact that many of the houses here were washed away by the sea in the past is a sobering fact.

The Bay Hotel has good views and we stopped there for a butty and a pint. The beach isn't massive but is good for children, but the tide does come right in. There was an ice cream man on the beach, but he drove off and parked up a slope once the tide started to advance!

You have to be pretty fit to see the best of Robin Hood's Bay but the climb down are back up are well worth it. The lovely little shops and cafes dotted around make it a true smuggler's haven from the past. Fantastic

A beautiful picturesque part of the coast with quaint gift shops. Even my 15 year old went for a paddle in the rock pools. Lovely views.
The museum gives you the history of the area and fascinating tales of its past. The gentleman running the museum is totally in love with the bay and very engaging with visitors of all ages. A little tucked away up the steps so make sure you look out for the sign and please take a visit and enjoy the butterfly's on the walk up to the entrance.
