Rather than gazing into your partner’s eyes, why not gaze at the stars instead? The Yorkshire coast has some incredible view points to sit under the stars with your loved one.


With very little light pollution and a cliff top vantage point, Kettleness, which sits between Runswick Bay and Whitby, is ideal for spotting up to 2,000 stars on a clear night.

The Yorkshire Coastline has many gorgeous beaches to choose from, from rugged cliffs to glorious stretches of white sand beaches.

For a bustling seaside resort, as well as an abundance of natural wonders and wildlife, head to Bridlington. You could also feast on fish and chips and have a stroll around the fun fair, what could be more romantic?


This picturesque village, which lies on Yorkshire’s heritage coastline, boasts a stunning, sandy beach with views towards the romantic ruins of Whitby Abbey. To walk the full length of the beach will take up to one and a half hours, depending on how long you want to stop and admire the waves.
