By George Sheeran

The Yorkshire coast has been attracting holidaymakers for centuries. This book is the first to delve into the world of moneyed visitors to the county’s seaside resorts, showing what attracted such people and why places like Scarborough, Filey and others remained select resorts until the beginning of the twentieth century. Many visitors before 1900 came from the upper reaches of British society, whether aristocracy or commercial and industrial magnates. But some Yorkshire resorts also catered for an international clientele – the French royal family had visited Scarborough, the Grand Duke and Duchess of Hesse stayed at Filey, while the Maharajah of Cooch Behar took a suite at the Hotel Metropole in Whitby.
