Scarborough has been a much loved seaside resort for hundreds of years. The golden sands of Scarborough beach, given the prestigious Blue Flag status for their quality and cleanliness, are always popular - donkey rides and even water zorbing add to the atmosphere. There's also a miniature railway that ferries people to the popular Sea Life Marine Sanctuary, home to a massive mix of underwater creatures.
The remains of Scarborough Castle tower over the town and the impressive building is drenched in history from the Romans, Vikings, Kings and conflicts - the views from the ruins are breathtaking.
Bridlington has two beaches of lush golden sand and a stunning harbour for fishing boats and pleasure cruises. For the kids, you'll find a funfair and The Bayside Pleasure Park, a mini theme park located on the promenade. If that's not enough, you can head to Sewerby Hall and Gardens where you will find a Museum and Children's Zoo.
Hornsea is another delightful location to spend a day at the beach. The town was once at the centre of pottery production in the region and is home to Yorkshire's largest freshwater lake, a haven for bird watching, sailing and fishing.
Whitby, meanwhile, is a popular historic town with a wonderful harbour splitting the town into old and new, with one side offering medieval streets and the other a variety of modern attractions. Whitby is the home of the Captain Cook Memorial Museum and the remains of Whitby Abbey, originally built in the year 657.
If you are interested in something a little different, then why not head to Withernsea where you will find a castle style entrance to the pebble beach and an inland lighthouse with a small museum and a lifeboat exhibition. Withernsea also boasts beautiful valley gardens which host open-air concerts in the summer.
