At the southern end of Robin Hood's Bay, Ravenscar occupies a stunning location. With history dating back to the Romans, who had a signalling station there, it is an interesting place to visit.

Though the foundation stone of the Roman fort is now an exhibit in the museum of nearby Whitby and the fort itself was destroyed by the Danes it is possible to see the site of the signalling station from the grounds of the Raven Hall Hotel. The Danes also gave the town its name, naming after their raven emblem.

The Raven Hall Hotel was once owned by Mr Willis, George III's doctor. It became a hotel in the 19th century as part of a plan to turn the town into a top seaside resort. These plans failed and the stretch of the Scarborough -Whitby railway that was built to service the town now makes an excellent walking and cycling route. Ravenscar is also the finishing point of the Lyke Wake Walk, a forty mile hike, traditionally ending up in the bar of the Raven Hall Hotel.

Ravenscar's key attraction is the view it offers of the famed Robin Hood's Bay and there are plenty of walks to maximise this stunning view.
