ABOUT WHITBY

Whitby is a wonderful tourist destination with a wide variety of activities and amenities. A year round destination with a burgeoning night life it boasts a range of top class restuarants and wine bars alongside the traditional cafes and pubs. Located on North Yorkshire’s own Jurassic Coast. This beautiful stretch of sand reaches 35 miles from Staithes to Flamborough Head and is famous for its fossils and Whitby Jet. It’s a great place to go fishing and sea angling or look at sea creatures in the rock pools – when the tide allows. You can walk from the cliff top along the Cleveland Way to idyllic Robin Hood’s Bay – take the bus back!
A Gateway to the North Yorkshire Moors, Whitby town is a marvellous base from which to explore the pretty moor villages such as Goathland and Grosmont. In summer the North Yorkshire Moors Railway runs steam trains from Whitby to the delightful market town of Pickering. Whitby’s favourite son is explorer Captain James Cook and Whitby is well known as the setting for Bram Stoker’s Dracula. There are museums and ghost walks and a host of delightful gift shops where you will find something original to take home. Ammonite Cottage is the perfect base from which to explore the town and farther afield.
