Consumer organisation Which? asked nearly 3,000 visitors about their recent trips to almost 100 resorts, giving them a rating out of five for a number of categories, including the beach, scenery, attractions, food and drink, entertainment and shopping.

Each town was also given an overall score, based on a combination of overall satisfaction and how likely people are to recommend the town as a holiday destination.

The highest score in Yorkshire was given to Robin Hood's Bay, which was 13th in the list and scored 78% overall. It was given a five-star rating for scenery.

Whitby impressed the visitors who took part in the survey.

Whitby was not far behind, on 76%, and also got top marks for scenery and four out of five for value-for-money.

Filey's peace and quiet and its attractive seafront scored highly and it was given 73% overall.

Scarborough was mid-table, on 72%, but gained four stars in four categories - scenery, accommodation, attractions and entertainment.

But it was bad news for Bridlington, which only scored 56% - below Blackpool - and there were only 11 resorts classed lower.

Bridlington only scored 56%

It's highest score was three stars and its seafront and food and drink options only scored two stars. It got the lowest rating of all for shopping.

Scarborough scored 72%
