Robin Hood’s Bay

Robin Hood’s Bay

We recently traveled to England to photograph a destination wedding in York, and we spent two weeks traveling throughout the United Kingdom from the White Cliffs of Dover on the southern coast, to London, then York, and continuing north to Edinburgh, Scotland.

While we were in York, we had a few days to explore the area before the wedding. So we rented a car and drove to the coast of North Yorkshire, England. We visited the fishing town of Whitby and Whitby Abbey, and then we spent the afternoon exploring Robin Hood’s Bay. The small fishing town of Robin Hood’s Bay is 5 miles south of Whitby.

From Wikipedia: “An English ballad and legend tell a story of Robin Hood encountering French pirates who came to pillage the fisherman’s boats and the northeast coast. The pirates surrendered and Robin Hood returned the loot to the poor people in the village that is now called Robin Hood’s Bay.”

Well in love with this small fishing village with cottages tucked against the cliffs all the way down to the North Sea! Robin Hood’s Bay is within the North York Moors National Park. We parked at the village’s cliff top and walked down to the coast. Walking down cobbled alleys and winding sidewalks, the cottages and red rooftops were as quaint as this fishing village. Looking out onto the bay, we also saw a gorgeous rainbow!
