The Sea Drift Cafe on Staithes Harbour, North Yorkshire, England

There are lots of pubs and cafes in Staithes but don't forget support for the lifeboat and other rescue organisations. The views here are around where High street meets the bottom of Church Street by Seaton Garth.

The Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage has established itself as one of the most relaxed, friendly, must-go-to events in the regional arts calendar. During the Festival weekend, some 100+ cottages open their doors and become temporary art galleries in a unique selling exhibition and all are welcomed by each host, but there are rather a lot of 'temporary galleries' to visit! There around 30 artists resident in the village, but the Festival is open to all artists of all abilities and attracts both professional and amateur artists from all over the country. Staithes festival also celebrates its heritage during the weekend in fossils, fishing, family history, smuggling, ironstone, alum and much more. There is lots of live music, busking, workshops, talks, guided walks and delicious food and drink from our pubs, cafes, bistros, restaurants and pop-up tearooms and cafes. All in all, a great day out!
