Whitby is a quaint fishing town, unspoilt by time. Amongst it’s winding, cobbled streets and fascinating shops, you will find hand-made local crafts, such as jewellery fashioned from the famous Whitby Jet, Victorian photographs by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe depicting life in Whitby in bygone days, and art galleries displaying original works.
There are many old inns, coffee shops and quality restaurants to visit, not forgetting Whitby Cod and chips! The beautiful harbour dominates the town, overlooked and guarded by the ancient ruins of Whitby Abbey atop the 199 steps.
Surrounded by National Park and Sea, with it’s stunning coastline and miles of golden beaches, famous steam railway, and rich heritage, Whitby offers the perfect holiday for everyone.
