Newest Review: ... beyond the beach huts on the West Side the restrictions are lifted and you can walk miles along the beach to Sandsend when the tide is out. It is a lovely walk and at the end there is a really nice café which serves great food. I can recommend the full English and the apple pie, On a nice day of course the miles of beach mean you can simply sit on the beach, or if you are brave swim in the sea. There are beach huts and deckchairs to hire and donkey rides if the fancy takes you. On the East side there is Tate Hill Beach which is small and sandy and dogs are allowed all year. As you would expect there are boat trips a plenty includi... more

Whitby for those that don't know is a seaside town on the East Coast in North Yorkshire and living in the North it is a place we visit at least once a year. The town is a port built up around the fishing industry and is famous for Captain James Cook who was born nearby and is where he started his seafaring career and is also the inspiration for Bram Stokers Dracula. Like many fishing ports the harbour area is lined with small cottages which date back to mediaeval times and which give Whitby its character. The town is divided into two parts the older East side which has the ruins of St Hilda's Abbey and St Mary's church and the West side ... Read the complete review

-==Introduction==- Ah.. Whitby, without question my favourite place in the world, my second home situated on isolated north yorkshire coast, completely unaffected by time and miles away from any cities or large towns, the closest being Scarborough, some 20 or so miles south. Whitby is remarkably well preserved and still retains its victorian charm, Whitby is as if frozen in time, it is unchanged, like the land that time forgot, cobbled winding streets that have existed since the days of the romans, ancient fishing boats, the notorious swing bridge which splits the old side of town from the new and remains relatively unchanged since it's inception, and a ...

Location We have always visited Whitby since I was tiny and when I was about 6 I started going and staying in a caravan for one week a year with my Great Auntie and Uncle. Whitby is about an hour away from us and so make a good place for days out too, it is set on the coast in North Yorkshire over the North Yorkshire Moors. Whitby is famous for many things such as 199 steps, Whitby Abbey and the whale bones and also holds lots of annual festivals such as a Gothic weekend, Folk week and the Regatta Festival. 199 steps to beauty The 199 steps are just like it sounds, there are 199 of them which curve up from the cobbled street ...

i had never been to whitby before and i have always wanted to go. and last year i did. going to to whitby from Grimsby is a long drive but it was well worth it. i was so excited because i have never been and that the one place i have always wanted to go in England. when we arrived in whitby the first thing i saw was the abbey. and that's when i got really exited. whitby is just so beautiful and with such a lot of history. shopping: after we settled in the b&b we was staying at, we ventured in to the town centre. on the way there. there was a lot of uphill and down hill walking. which was very tiring but it was worth it. as you walk through the town ...

I was born and raised in Whitby so naturally this is going to be a positive review, and I will probably rattle on forever so forgive me! Sadly my family moved away from Whitby when I was 13 but I've been making regular trips back in the last 10 years whenever I can to visit friends and take a little holiday. Whitby, in my opinion, is one of the best places you could go in the UK for a weekend break with your partner or family. It has some breathtaking views from the west cliff over the sea and indeed the abbey. It's not a bad view over Whitby from the abbey itself either. The abbey is on the top of the east cliff, and can be reached on foot via ... Read the complete review
