The old village of Robin Hood’s Bay is a magnet for visitors. The village road runs steeply down to the very edge of the rocky shore and there are intriguing alleyways weaving between tightly packed cottages and houses. Along the rocky shoreline are rock pools with abundant marine life, perfect for crabbing with the kids when the tides out. The village also has public toilets, a picnic area, tourist Information, takeaways restaurants, tearooms, a general store and gift shops, and public houses serving bar meals, a church and post office. There are also regular bus services to and from Whitby and Scarborough.
