The striking southern headland of Robin Hood's Bay is rich in human and natural history. Delve into the past, investigate local industrial heritage at the old Alum Works and explore the remains of a WWII radar station or see a reinstated rocket post, once used in practice exercises by coastguards. Enjoy scenic walks taking in stunning views, flower rich clifftop meadows, woodlands, farmland and ponds.

Drop in at Ravenscar Visitor Centre, open daily from Easter until the end of October (10am - 5pm), then weekends only in November and December (10am - 4pm) with displays and information to enhance your visit. Make the most of the picnic area – the perfect spot to relax.
