Robin Hood’s Bay

Walk around the village where Robin Hood visited.

Along our Jurassic coastline you’ll discover a small fishing village at the bottom of a very steep hill, RHB is now a popular holiday destination. Legend has it that Robin Hood (yes really), encountered French pirates who had come to pillage fishermen’s boats all along the North East Coast. The pirates surrendered and Mr Hood returned the looted possessions to the poor people of the village, now referred to as Robin Hood’s Bay. No explanation is available as to why Robin Hood was in the area.

The beach is ideal for adults and children alike. Rest and recuperate or explore the rock pools and seek out ancient fossils.
