The picturesque seaside town of Whitby sits nestled just below the wild North Yorkshire moors on the dramatic North East coast line. With its quaint cobbled streets, pretty houses and blue flag beach.
Whitby is a great destination for a day trip or short break.
Why not visit St Hilda’s Abbey which sits on the cliffs dominating the towns skyline, or the old church of St Mary’s. Which was said to inspire Bram Stoker to write his novel Dracula.
If your feeling fit enough take the 199 steps down from the Abbey headland to the old town to browse the many independent shops and why not pick up some Jet, another of Whitbys famous exports.
With Whitby’s rich maritime heritage there is plenty to do to keep the young and old alike entertained, from crabbing, exploring the rock pools on the beautiful beach or educate yourself about the original globe trotter Captain Cook at his very own museum.
If you don’t have a pair of sea legs why not take a ride on the North Yorkshire moors railway for a scenic day out or even visit Goathland where Heartbeat was filmed.
Of course you can’t come to Whitby without tasting probably the best fish and chips in the country!
