Attraction Information

Cleveland Way National Trail follows a horseshoe shaped line around much of the lovely North York Moor National Park, with a variety of habitats to explore.
There are some great hills for the kids to climb, with some breathtaking views from the top and plenty of hidden gems to discover along the Yorkshire coast, such as fossils, rock pools and more. You will pass a variety of lively coastal towns and old fishing villages, such as Scarborough, plus the Market town of Helmsley, which is the starting point of the walk.
Along the way, there are a number of special sites with a wealth of heritage and history to enjoy. Look out for Mount Grace Priory, which was founded in 1398, the White Horse of Kilburn and Whitby Abbey, to name just a few. Sutton Bank Visitor Centre is also worth look.
Filey Brigg marks the end of the Trail and is a great spot for budding birdwatchers as there are a great variety of seabirds and waders, plus geologists will love inspecting the rocky promontory.
