The charm of Whitby, with its narrow cobbled streets, picturesque pantiled houses, stunning coastal scenery, safe beaches and traditional welcoming friendliness of the local residents, are just a few of the reasons why people return year after year to this jewel on the Yorkshire Coast.
This historic harbour town is steeped in tradition and its walls are testimony to its unique past, from the fascinating Abbey to Captain James Cook and the local shipping industry that spanned the globe.
Apart from the coast, discover the North York Moors National Park, over 18 miles of National Parkland, with its heather clad hills, hidden valleys and tumbling brooks, enjoy the endless networks of footpaths, cycle paths and trails. Take in the North York Moors Railway from Grosmont, stopping off at Goathland, famous as Heartbeat’s Aidensfield or visit the various hidden unspoilt villages or the many stately homes in the area.
Whether you are a cyclist, walker or wildlife enthusiast, and with so many scenic areas to enjoy why not stay a night or two and take the time to soak in the atmosphere of this wonderful part of Yorkshire.
