52 Ways To Enjoy Robin Hood’s Bay: #23 Enjoy Robin Hood’s Bay With Art


1. The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.

2. The various branches of creative activity, such as painting, music, literature, and dance.

No matter whether you are an amateur or a professional, whether your love is for painting, drawing, photography, music, poetry or literature, whether you’ve dabbled or it’s your first time picking up the camera, putting pencil to paper, letting the watercolours flow from your paintbrush, why not make Robin Hood’s Bay your creative muse.

Where more special than this little village perched perfectly on the coastal edge of the North York Moors National Park quite literally in its very own Bay. Quite possibly why it earnt the name Baytown back long ago when the village was rife with a heritage of fishing and the smuggling of contraband. With its red pantile roofed old fisherman’s cottages tumbling down to the Sea some of which over the years have sadly been lost, the dramatic Yorkshire skies and the roar of the North Sea there’s plenty to pull at the heart strings and to be inspired by. We haven’t even mentioned yet the ever-changing face of Bay Beach, the quaint cobbled streets and alleyways, the dramatic cliffs, the Ravenscar headland or the Seals that live at the foot of the headland.

Robin Hood’s Bay also has a deep-rooted heritage of Folk Music and boasts some of today’s most influential artists in Folk Music as some of its residents.

There are many other talented artists of many forms born out of Robin Hood’s Bay or who have come to reside here and more often or not you will always find Robin Hood’s Bay at their very heart and the strongest inspiration for their work.
