Advantages: Plenty of food restaurants, shops and lovely scenery
Disadvantages: Cars coming through, looking over your shoulders for motorists, Can be rather overcrowed
The family and I decided to go to York for a short break and found ourselves going to Whitby for the day. Now this was a first for us as we have a love affair with Cornwall, so a new experience. Whitby in general is OK but like a lot of small fishing towns there's alway cars driving through and take over the area, one lady got knocked over by a 4x4 going over the bridge. Finding places to eat is easy as long as you love fish & chips which can be rather boring. We went to the Pier pub, what a mistake that was. Firstly when we entered there was no welcome by the girl behind the bar standing directly in front of us. Secondly when we sat down and looked at the menu the dumb girl behind the bar kept looking over, but looked away and pretended to listen to these 2 locals at the bar when we wanted her attention. That was the last straw! and we left giving her a bollocking for poor customer service.
I must add that we are a mixed race family and there was a strong smell of racism in the air with that girl.
But all in all it's good place to visit for the day (not the Pier pub) but with the usual cars and vans passing through which does spoil it.
Summary: Nice location, good food venues if like fish and chips, great entertainment for the kids.
