Famous for its links to Bram Stoker’s ’Dracula’ novel, Whitby has a Gothic flavour with its abbey atop the famous 199 steps offering exhilarating views every way you turn from this natural vantage point, across the harbour and town, and into the countryside beyond. The ruins of the abbey stand proudly on top of the East Cliff headland above the busy seaside town of Whitby.
The old town has cobbled streets and independent shops galore, as well as a fantastic foodie scene with everything from award-winning fish and chips to gastro pubs, bistros and traditional pub fayre. There are plenty of tea rooms and coffee shops mixed amongst the ice cream parlours and pubs with live music all year round. Whitby plays host to many different festivals and events from the bi-annual Goth Weekend, music festivals, a regatta and popular Folk Festival, so keep an eye on the calendar of events. There is a 2 mile stretch of golden sand to explore with rock pools and fossil hunting.
Venture further afield and visit the North York Moors National Park for some stunning scenery. Take a steam train journey into the heart of the National Park from Whitby station and snake into lush greenery. Visit ’Aidensfield’ from the TV series ’Heartbeat’ at Goathland. There are waterfalls and walking tracks including The Cleveland Way, the epic Lykewake Walk or the Cinder Track, which starts from the doorstep. Explore the Yorkshire Heritage Coast and discover the many hidden gems such as Runswick Bay, Robin Hood’s Bay and Staithes which are all a short drive away. The traditional seaside town of Scarborough is 20 miles south and has plenty to offer with its expanse of beaches, a waterpark and an open air theatre, which has regular international bands and acts performing throughout the summer. There is so much more in the area including the walled city of York, Pickering and an abundance of historic abbeys across North Yorkshire. Beach ½ mile. Shop 250 yards, pub and restaurant 200 yards.
