Robin Hoods Bay, North Yorkshire

Robin Hoods Bay is only a few miles away from Whitby in North Yorkshire, but it has its own history and is a great spot to find fossils.
It’s just a short walk from the top, but it takes you through a great stroll into the town or you can choose the beach walk.

Only a short video but it shows why this place is so popular.

Robin Hoods Bay used to be known as a smugglers town and you can spot some of the hidden walk ways that were used to smuggle things like tea, alcohol and tobacco.
The coast dates back 150-200 million years ago.

To add more to the day you can visit the near by Sneaton Forest where you can see the amazing waterfall after the rain.
