Whitby & North Yorkshire MoorsINCLUDED Visitor DestinationWhitby is an ancient port with a fascinating history, a ruined abbey overlooking the town, and a working harbour. It also has sandy beaches, donkey rides and rock pools, not to mention some of the best fish and chips in the world! It is easy to see why Bram Stoker found it the perfect location for his novel Dracula in 1897, and the town has not changed a lot since then. The River Esk flows north through the centre of the town dividing it into East and West Sides, linked by the renowned ”swing-bridge”. Whitby Abbey, St Mary’s Parish Church and the picturesque ‘old town’ lie on the East Side, while the West Side of the town has some equally historic fishermen's cottages, hidden in traditional yards behind the fish market and main shopping streets. Slightly further away from the noise and bustle of the harbour are many fine Georgian townhouses, built during Whitby’s most prosperous era in the days of sail. They cluster around the delightful Pannett Park, also home to the town Museum and Art Gallery. The town's most famous explorer Captain James Cook is commemorated with a bronze Whalebone Arch, and the fashionable spa resort was loved by Lewis Carroll and Charles Dickens. We are sure you will love it too!
Also head out on a scenic drive into the rolling moorlands of the North Yorkshire Moors, which offers a breathtaking journey through stunning landscapes and charming villages. We will include a stop or two on the way.
