Ravenscar Round Try a Trail

Route type: Circular and Linear Walks

This is a circular walk on an attractive coastal section of the Cleveland Way at Ravenscar.  Ravenscar is a great spot to visit, with a unique history - it is known as the "Town that never was" and outstanding views across the coast to Robin Hoods Bay. It also houses the National Trust Visitor Centre, where there is plenty of good advice and drinks and light snacks are available, as well as the Ravenscar Tea Rooms and Raven Hall Hotel

This is a  walk of great contrasts. Firstly the dramatic cliff top experience, then a chance to walk on the old railway line between Scarborough and Whitby before culminating in a visit to the fascinating site of the Peak Alum Works.

  • Distance:  6 miles (9.5km)
  • Duration:  allow 3 1/2 to 4 hours including breaks
