Robin Hood’s Bay

Old Coastguard Station - National Trust

The Old Coastguard Station sits on the slipway to the beach and is the National Trust's café (ground floor) and visitor centre (first floor with access lift).

Inside you can enjoy a hot drink, snack, cake or ice-cream, as well as learn about the area’s distinctive geology, the impact of the elements and climate change on the coast, local history - including smuggling, and the work that National Trust rangers are doing in the area.

You can also pick up a free-to-borrow Tracker Pack. These rucksacks are full of useful information and guides on fossil hunting, bird watching and rockpooling. Games and ideas are included in the activity leaflet, which when completed is yours to keep.

On certain dates throughout the warmer months, join one of our 1-hour rockpooling and beachcombing sessions.
