When exploring Whitby, leave the car behind and strike out on foot. No visit is complete without a day at the beach – borrow the picnic hamper provided. Whitby is one of the few seaside locations where the sun rises and sets over the same bay, very romantic! The food here is great, whether it’s a plate of Whitby’s finest fish and chips, luxury seafood or a pub meal. Spend time quayside, in one of the bustling wine bars – perfect for people watching. Or take a boat trip from the harbour for a different perspective.
