Whitby, The Moors & Coast


Whitby and the surrounding area

History and culture; views and festivals; vampires and Goths; fish and chips: it’s all on offer at Whitby, the Yorkshire coast’s best loved seaside town. With its rich history, intriguing characters and good transport links, Whitby is the perfect base for a holiday. Historians will enjoy finding out about its connection to Captain Cook and the role it played in the whaling and jet industries; steam fans can board the North Yorkshire Moors Railway at its northernmost station; and those with a literary bent can follow in the footsteps of Bram Stoker's Dracula, Lewis Carroll and the du Mauriers. Don’t miss the opportunity to discover Whitby from a different view and get out on the water or take the 199 steps to Whitby Abbey, where you will be rewarded with a stunning scene looking over the town.

We are situated in the centre of the town just minutes from the beach, independent shops, cobbled Church Street, St Mary's church and Whitby Abbey.

Further afield are the North York Moors and the towns and villages of the coast; the perfect base for walking, cycling or scenic drives.
