On Sunday afternoon we were heading to Scarborough to visit family, however on the way there we stopped off at Robin Hood’s Bay.
Parking at the top of the hill is advisable. Actually it is a necessity as the road down to the beach is steep and narrow with no space to pass. It is a pleasant walk down to the beach, but do remember if you walk down you have to walk back up.
There are narrow alleys off all the way down.
When we arrived at the beach, the tide was out and the beach was busy. An ice cream van was parked up plying its trade.
Then it was a case of turning round and heading back up the hill. This took us a lot longer. Part way up we stopped to buy an ice cream and lingered by the parapet of a bridge over a stream.
Before there was mains water, the residents had to get water from fountains. There is one still part way up the hill.
Returning to the top there is a sculpture with a globe on top, just opposite the Victoria Hotel.
