Yorkshire Coast

Guide to the Yorkshire Coast


Traditional seaside resorts like Whitby, Scarborough, Bridlington & Hornsea and the wildlife santuaries Spurn Point & Bempton Cliffs.

The Yorkshire coast consists of chalk cliffs in the north, below Flamborough Head the chalk gives way to clay. This boulder clay was deposited by the retreating galciers after the last Ice Age and has left East Yorkshire with a fragile coastline that has one of the highest erosion rates in the country. Out to sea are numerous Yorkshire villages that have over the centuries been lost to the sea.

There are some lovely beaches along the coast and in the south the impressive Spurn Point, a huge sand spit that is formed by the gradual movement of deposits down the coast. Over the centuries these sand spits are breached by the sea and they then reform. This area of the Yorkshire coast is a haven for wildlife.
