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.

St Mary’s Church

Climb the famous 199 steps for glorious views of the harbour and across the town of Whitby; visit this charming and historic church, with its original pews, interesting history and exhibits.

Captain Cook Memorial Museum

Enjoy a tour of Whitby’s famous son, Captain Cook, and his voyages of discovery.

The Dracula Experience

Brave the Dracula Experience on the harbour-side, where you’ll hear the story of Dracula and the connections to Whitby – a little scary but a must!

Whitby Beach

The 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.

Shopping

Whitby has many independent, quaint shops selling wonderful ware from Whitby jet or hand-made soaps, to gifts, retro sweets, books, artwork and clothing.  There’s a market held in the old town with its cobbled streets, or why not walk along Henrietta Street near The 199 Steps and visit Fortune’s Kippers – a smokehouse that’s been family run for generations.    There are lots of cute cafes and tea rooms serving Whitby’s famous crab sandwiches or glorious home made cakes along with a pot of Yorkshire Tea, ideal to sit and relax along the way, then continue, refreshed!

Eat, drink and be merry!

Whitby has established a reputation for providing a wide range of eateries – from traditional pubs and pie shops to award-winning restaurants and champagne bars.  There’s numerous fish and chip restaurants, some of which attract visitors from all over the world.   Whatever your tastes, there will be something to suit, from simple fare to culinary delights!

Whitby Goth Festivals/Folk Week/Whitby Regatta

Whitby is home to many wonderful events that attract visitors from across the UK and overseas.  Why not come during the two Goth Festivals, Folk Week or the wonderful Whitby Regatta, incredibly popular extravaganzas that take place annually and are such a treat.

Sightseeing along the coast

Nearby seaside villages including Sandsend with its charming sea-front cafes (you can walk there from Whitby during low tide, it’s c. 25 minutes) and the pretty Runswick Bay in one direction, or Robin Hood’s Bay, Scarborough and Filey going south.  Inland villages worth visiting include Grosmont – go by steam train! – or Goathland – where they filmed ITV’s Heartbeat.
