Explore Yorkshire's Coast from Filey to Scarborough - GOGA Walk - Sunday 10th December

Group University of Leeds Events
Venue Parkinson Steps
Starts Sun 10 Dec 8:00AM


Join GOGA for a guided walk along the beautiful cliffs and coastline of the Yorkshire Coast from Filey to Scarborough, with time to explore the historic town of Scarborough after the walk.



Detailed Description

This walk starts just outside Filey at Cayton and takes in cliff tops, beaches and breathtaking views. As we approach Scarborough, the castle will appear on the headland.

Scarborough is a popular seaside resort town reportedly founded around 966 AD by a Viking raider, and is famous for its two bays with sandy beaches split by a headland bearing the 12th-century Scarborough Castle. The South Bay was the site of the original medieval settlement and harbour, which form the old town now the main tourist area with cafés, amusements, arcades, theatres and entertainment facilities.

We will pause en route to rest and to appreciate the views and will finish the trip off with some free time in Scarborough so we suggest bringing some spending money for a tasty meal, snack or hot drink before departing back for Leeds. Alternately you may want to bring a packed lunch and drink of your own.

We will depart by coach from the Parkinson Steps at 08:00 returning at approximately 18:00. We would like to emphasise the need for good outdoor walking shoes or boots, a waterproof jacket, a drink bottle plus snacks or a packed lunch for during the walk.

A final details email will be sent out beforehand.

Date and time:
Sunday 10th December 08:00-18:00
