We visited with friends, in total 2 toddlers, a baby and 4 adults. We came in to the coastguard station after an afternoon on the beach. The station has a number of interactive displays which worked for toddlers and adults alike with the favourite being the rock pool tank. The staff on hand were really kind and helpful with the...

we popped in and glad we did, lots of information about local area and a small tank filled with life found in the rock pools, there was also a craft area with local crafts for sale, and a good view across the bay. and to top it all it is free to enter.

crammed a lot into a small space, the National Trust shop, a brilliant information centre about the Bay and a fantastic mosaic that runs up the stairs, which is by local artist, Jo Whitney. This place is a must for your visit as the friendly and helpful staff know their stuff about the area!

There's a few things to see and read up on so its good for the little ones, especially if your going to the rock pools, I could see it being busy if the weather turns bad,

Provides a really good insight into the coast and beach around Robin Hoods Bay, and alongside it is a great little gift shop

Greeted with a cheery hello by the young lady working behind the counter which is always a good start. Nice little selection of gifts and products to purchase although a tad expensive compared with the other shops in the area. Excellent views and some interesting facts to read and a couple of interactive features for the children

Went into the coastguard station as it was National Trust. Great little shop selling a few of the trusts favourites. I bought a diffuser and some scented candles. When I went to pay, the lady behind the counter started to chat to me. We talked generally about the area and other NT properties. She was a very friendly and helpful... More

Very interesting and informative. Good for children and adults. Lots of useful information about the bay, especially the effect of erosion of the cliff and the houses which have fallen into the sea. Very well run by the National Trust and free to enter!
