Exploring our Coast

© East Riding of Yorkshire Council
Yorkshire’s coastline is a treasure trove of wide golden beaches, open countryside, dynamic rocky shore, hidden coves, seaside towns and quiet villages.

From walks along the England Coast Path to guided seashore safaris, full-day wildlife tours to exploring the UK’s largest and most accessible breeding seabird colony – you’ll never be short of ideas for outdoor adventures on the Yorkshire coast. Remember to take a look at the Enjoy the Coast section before you go and help us to keep our coastline special.

Yorkshire’s wealth of wildlife can be experienced in so many ways – check out the events and activities available on the Yorkshire coast, using the links below.

Exploring on Foot

Some of the best wildlife experiences can be had when you leave the car behind and explore our stunning coastal footpaths.  Not only will you get away from the crowds and find new places to love, you’ll be reducing your impact on the environment and getting back to nature.

We are connected to a number of different national trails and long-distance paths, there’s also a myriad of local footpaths to explore. So, whether you’re looking for a short circular route or a challenging hill climb, plan your next walking, cycling or running adventure using the links below.
