Yorkshire has a cracking coast with beaches that have earned the prestigious Blue Flag award for their cleanliness, and traditional seaside towns such as Scarborough, Bridlington and Filey that are packed full of fun for families.
Four Yorkshire parks
Haven has four parks in Yorkshire. Reighton Sands and Primrose Valley near Filey, and Blue Dolphin between Scarborough and Filey, have Haven's superb selection of facilities. Haven's newest site, Thornwick Bay, makes the most of its wonderful setting to offer something a little different.
Scarborough can claim to be the UK's first seaside resort; the spa waters and golden sands have attracted visitors for hundreds of years. Overlooking the beach are the remains of Scarborough Castle tower, from where the views are stunning. For a treat, take the kids on the miniature railway from North Bay to the Sea Life and Marine Sanctuary.
Best of Bridlington
Bridlington lacks Scarborough's size, but can still boast two sandy golden beaches and a stunning harbour for fishing boats and pleasure cruises. There's a funfair and small pleasure park, plus a children's zoo at Sewerby Hall, which also hosts annual events such as medieval jousting and other historical re-enactments.
York is a sightseeing highlight. The magnificent Minster, the Roman remains of the city walls and the many medieval buildings are among the most popular sights for tourists.
