Travel to Whitby by road

The journey to Whitby is a superb opportunity to soak up the majestic moorland countryside, with the main road in and out of town, the A171, offering breath-taking scenery. For those travelling from the North, take the A171 down from Guisborough or if you are travelling from the South, travel up the A64 and then take the A169 around Malton before driving through Pickering and joining the A171 just after Staithes.

To plan your journey, we recommend using AA Route Planner and for traffic updates, use viamichelin.co.uk

Travel to Whitby by train

Situated in the heart of the town is the railway station, offering a relaxing way to travel to the North Yorkshire coast. The Northern Railway will take you through the beautiful Esk Valley and to Whitby, or for a memorable experience, enjoy a ride on the heritage North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
