About Whitby

The local Visitor centre is very close for you to pop in and get help or advise on all local events and happenings.

Whitby is famous for its Festival weekends, Regatta Week and Folk weeks. Not forgetting the hugely popular and fun ‘Goth’ weekends.

The North Yorkshire Steam Railway has links from Whitby.

Pannett  Park and museum are well worth a visit for local Whitby history and the famous Dinasaur fossils.

Both Whitby and Sandsend  have the top  ‘Blue Flag’ rated beaches, for cleanliness and safety.

Fishing is another of the Whitby pastimes, where you can hire a boat and tackle  for a day in the North sea or you can join the many enthusiasts  with their simple lines trying their luck off the Pier.

A short sea trip is available with the speedboat ‘Velocity’ or try the replica galleon ‘Endeavour’ or  the many other vessels which take you on a short coastal trip including a lovely sunset trip on the ‘Esk Belle’.

The new Abbey visitor centre and the Captain Cook museum are a must for all visitors to historic Whitby.
