Robin Hood's Bay

Robin Hood's Bay is between Whitby and Scarborough on the coast. The name of the village is intriguing as there is no evidence that Robin Hood visited the area. There is an old ballad that tells the tale of some fishermen who lost their boats to French Pirates only to have them returned by Robin Hood.

Robin Hood's Bay is a historic village and pre-dates Robin Hood and the area was settled by Vikings. Like other fishing villages it has been a centre for smuggling during it's history and the narrow streets re-enforce it's character.

It is popular with day visitors who combine it with a visit to Whitby and the view of the Bay is well worth the visit.
