Although Whitby is one of the jewels of the North Yorkshire countryside, there is much more to see on the doorstep of your stay here. Visit neighbouring towns or take a trip on a steam railway, see the beauty of Yorkshire.
Whitby is nestled within one of the most beautiful areas of the English countryside. A trip out of the town brings the delights of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park with acres of stunning moorland, open spaces and forests; walking, cycling and climbing opportunities abound.
Train and bus links provide easy access to North Yorkshire's many attractions, theme parks, museums and market towns. Along the coast line are quaint fishing villages, stunning cliff side walks, fossil hunting and rock pooling gems.
I went to the cemetery yesterday to lay some flowers on a grave. As I was standing there I noticed 4 grave diggers walking about with a coffin, 3 hours later and they're still walking about with it. I thought to myself, they've lost the plot!!
