Our Whitby Travel Guide includes… Places to stay, things to do and how to get to Whitby

The seaside town of Whitby is located within the Scarborough borough of North Yorkshire and has been a popular holiday destination for tourists for hundreds of years. Whitby was even famously mentioned in Bram Stoker’s novel, Dracula, published in 1897.

Famed for its harbour, sandy beaches and delicious fish and chips, there is plenty to see and do on a holiday in Whitby. Climb the 199 steps towards St Mary’s Church and be rewarded by views of the harbour below. Other famous landmarks include the ruins of Whitby Abbey, a beautiful 7th century monastery, and the famous Whalebone Arch, a bronze statue that commemorates the life of Captain James Cook.

Make Whitby your next chosen destination and find your holiday inspiration with our Whitby Travel Guide.
