What's on nearby?

There’s so much to see and do, for all ages, in Whitby, it’s a much-loved, ancient seaside town and former fishing port, one of the few seaside locations where the sun rises and sets over the same bay.

Whitby Museum in Pannetts Park

There’s many great exhibits in this charming and interesting museum, that shows the extensive and fascinating history that Whitby has; definitely worth a visit. Lovely children’s playground nearby too.

Whitby Abbey

Situated on the top of Whitby’s East Cliff, it’s one of the most popular tourist destinations in the seaside town and inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the world-famous novel and most filmed book of all time, that was part-written in Whitby when the author stayed here in Victorian times. The Visitor Centre, run by English Heritage, is excellent.

Whitby Beach

The nearby beaches are sandy and golden and the pretty harbour – with its famous swing bridge – is edged with stylish wine bars and award-winning restaurants. Walk along the pier with its iconic lighthouse and look over the bay and across to Sandsend – wonderful as the sun is setting – or take some of our famous fish and chips and sit, enjoying the incomparable views.

Whitby Harbour

Go crabbing- a favourite pastime – from the harbour or simply watch the sun go down over the old town – especially nice over a glass of something chilled! Enjoy a boat ride around the bay including a sunset cruise up the coast to Sandsend.


Whitby has many independent, quaint shops selling wonderful ware from Whitby jet or hand-made soaps, to gifts, retro sweets, books, artwork and clothing.
