Robin Hood's Bay is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Evidence of settlement in the area dates back to 3000 years ago and since then, Romans, Saxons, Danes and Normans have all left traces in the area, though the figure of Robin Hood himself has no known link to the area!

There are plenty of attractions for the visitor encompassing both historic places of interest and places of natural beauty. For those who enjoy the outdoors, there is of course, the bay itself and the coastal walks around there. In addition, there is a nearby waterfall and woodlands as well as horse-riding and cycling trails. The North Yorkshire Geology Trust also leads guided walks of the area, showing the best locations for fossil hunting.

For those interested in the history of the area, a visit to the Robin Hood's Bay Museum is a must. Narrow cobbled steps lead to the museum, which is entirely staffed by volunteers. There are exhibits about the geology of the area, the shipping and fishing industries and information about the smugglers that used to live in the area. A model of a smuggler's house shows all the creative ways that smuggled goods could be hidden. No trip to the Bay would be complete without a look inside this fascinating museum.
