About Old Coastguard Station
The National Trust's visitor centre at the edge of the sea in Robin Hood's Bay village will help you discover what makes this part of the Yorkshire Coast so special.
Explore the area’s distinctive geology, the impact of the elements and climate change on the coast, local wildlife and the secret history of smuggling. Learn about the work National Trust rangers are doing or find out more about other places to visit nearby.
The ground-floor café serves hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, pasties and sausage rolls, ice-cream and a selection of cakes and bakes. And you’ll find a collection of second-hand books for sale.
When you enjoy a drink or snack from the café, or buy a second-hand book, your money stays locally, contributing to the upkeep of the Old Coastguard Station and the beautiful coastline surrounding it.
Free entry. Open daily mid-March to the end of October, then winter weekends. Please check website for times and winter opening.
Steps to entrance, portable ramp available. Ground floor fully accessible. Accessible lift available to first floor.
If you fall in love with the place, you can even stay in a cosy National Trust holiday apartment on the top floor, the Boatman's Loft.
