Getting There

Getting to Whitby: Whitby by car, train and bus

It most probable that you’ll arrive in Whitby by car, and all routes into the charming seaside town boast wonderful scenery as they meander across the moors. The A171, the A174 and the A169 all serve the town. Be aware that in bad weather driving conditions can be difficult due to the nature of the roads, so plan ahead and leave plenty of time for your journey.

It is possible to reach Whitby by train from Middlesbrough. However, due to the frequent stops if you’re traveling from further afield it may well be quicker to take the bus. Whitby is served by regular luxury coaches from Leeds and York.

If arriving by air the closest airports to Whitby vacation rentals are Leeds Bradford and Newcastle. Manchester is also under two hours from Whitby vacation homes.

Food & Drinks

Food and drink in Whitby: Seafood by the seaside

Seafood is famous in Whitby and the kippers (regional cured fish) are no exception. Fortune’s is the famous smoking establishment, but you can pick up kippers at many cafes and stalls. Fish and chips, the classic seaside staple, are also popular. Check out The Pier Inn when you hire Whitby vacation rentals to sample the great grub and enjoy seafront views.

The Humble Pie and Mash Shop is a cosy, family run café that serves up, you guessed it, delicious pies. This classic northern comfort food is a cheap treat for anybody staying in a Whitby vacation home. Other notable restaurants and eateries in the area are the Bridge Bar and Brassiere, Magpie Café and Arnie’s. Whitby has daily markets where you can buy fresh fish and get creative in the kitchen of your Whitby vacation rental.

Attractions

Whitby and its sights: What to see in Whitby

Whitby is often associated with the Dracula stories, and it is said that the ruined Benediction abbey inspired Bram Stoker’s novel. However, the abbey is also a wonderful signifier of the reformation, and what remains of the abbey dates back to 1540. In the town center, there is also a Dracula experience where you can learn more about the history of Stoker’s creation.

To ascend up the 199 steps to the abbey has become somewhat of an attraction in its own right. It might seem like a challenge but the panoramic views from the top are worth every step.

Those with a nautical interest should pay a visit to the Captain Cook Museum. It documents the life of one of Britain’s most prominent and successful circumnavigators, who was born in nearby Middlesbrough.

You can explore Whitby’s ghoulish history with a ghost walk around the town. Several creepy and unnerving events have been reported in the town and the crooked, narrow streets certainly lend themselves to the experience.

Family Activities

Whitby with kids: What to do with children in Whitby

Robin Hood’s Bay is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon when the sun is shining. 5-mile south of Whitby, the bay is known for the many fossils that can be found on its beaches, including dinosaur footprints, which are perfect for getting young ones excited about history and science.

The North Sea, located just off the coast of Whitby, is a primary spot for whale-watching. The Whitby Whale Watching Center offers four-hour trips to try and catch a glimpse of seals, dolphins and a variety of whales.

If it’s raining, then a trip to the Whitby Museum or Mini Monsterz is a great way to spend the day. The latter boasts an indoor play area which includes climbing walls, sandpits and obstacle courses.
