Things to do on the Yorkshire coast: New website launches with guides for six coastal towns

A new website has been launched to give visitors to the Yorkshire coast a better idea of how to make the most of their visit to the area.

Route YC has been launched by the Yorkshire Coast BID, and describes its website as "a new collection of six, adventurous visitor routes" so people can explore the hidden gems around the coast as well as the classic tourist visitors sites.

Tourists can pick the town they want to visit and then choose how they want to spend their time in each area, from relaxing days in the pubs and restaurants to the most exciting hikes around the cliffs.

The routes have been created with the supporting of local businesses in mind. Among those to features on some of the Route YC trails are Kerry and David Woodhead, owners of Pinewood Park - a quirky glamping site in Scarborough.

They said: "We’re so happy to be part of Route YC here at Pinewood Park. We’re a little bit quirky, we know we offer a unique experience and that’s what Route YC is all about too. As residents on the Yorkshire Coast, we know all the lesser-known spots – we obviously share this with our customers. But it’s hard for people who don’t know the area to find all this out.
