Ready to enjoy a pretty winter walk? One of the UK’s prettiest destinations for a winter walk is in North Yorkshire.

There’s nothing quite like a bracing winter walk along the British coast. The team at Verdant Leisure have shared some of the UK’s prettiest routes.

A spokesperson said: “An infamous 4.5 star rated seaside town and a gem on the North Yorkshire coast, Robin Hood’s Bay is a must when it comes to wintery walks, with nearly four million photos and videos shared through Instagram and TikTok.

“For wholesome views of the stunning beaches and wildlife, take the Robin Hood’s Bay Circular Coastal Walk which offers an all-round glimpse into the different landscapes of Whitby.

“Prior to visiting any beaches, check the tide tables online or ask the locals, and always wrap up warm for the wintry winds and high chance of rainfall.”

Robin Hood’s Bay is a pretty village on the North Yorkshire coast, just six miles south of Whitby and 15 miles north of Scarborough.

It’s not known how the village earned its name as it’s unlikely the UK’s favourite outlaw ever ventured there.

However, the village was featured in Bram Stoker’s chilling novel, Dracula, and several scenes took place there.

A tourist wrote on Tripadvisor: “Robin Hood’s Bay is lovely. Especially for couples and walkers. It’s also great for kids to search for crabs on the rocky shore.”

‘Sandykstan’ said: “Give your eyes a treat and your legs a challenge! Beautiful unspoilt coastal location. Ample places to eat and drink without being overrun.”

‘Go708321’ said: “Gorgeous. Took a lovely walk from the town along the clifftop path to Boggle Hole, then back along the beach.”
