About Ravenscar Visitor Centre
Situated at the southern end of Robin Hood’s Bay, the National Trust’s Ravenscar Visitor Centre is a gateway to the Yorkshire Coast. Find information about the local area, walking and cycling routes, events and self-led activities such as geocaching and wildlife watching.
With indoor seating and picnic benches outside, you can rest and refuel with a hot or cold drink, ice-cream, cake or savoury snack and browse the second-hand bookshop. Proceeds go towards running the visitor centre and caring for the coast.
Discover the intriguing story of Ravenscar, known as ‘The Town That Never Was’, before exploring the village to uncover its secrets. The remains of Peak Alum Works and a WWII radar station are on the doorstep, evidence of the area’s rich human history; while nature lovers can enjoy stunning views, flower rich clifftop meadows, woodlands and ponds, all within easy walking distance.
The Cleveland Way National Trail and Cinder Track bring hikers and bikers right to the door.
