About the neighbourhood
Whitby is ideally located for walking and visiting local towns and resorts in the vicinity. The 13th Century Historic Abbey Ruins on the Cliff top overlook the town and Harbour. There are excellent Wine Bars/ traditional ancient Public Houses and of course amusements for the children with us and within us.Twin Piers protrude from the harbour and after restoration work both can now be accessed. You can go fishing from the Piers, or Boat fishing from the harbour by private charter for approximately 35.Why not venture along the Cliff top beyond the Abbey to Saltwick Bay, here you can get a bite to eat drink and perhaps go winklingGrosmont only a short drive away welcomes you with a Steam Railway heading to Pickering and sometimes serves lunch onboard on Sundays, this is a journey through beau...
Getting around
There is a local train station where you can go along the Esk Valley Line which is beautiful. There is a regular bus service leaving Whitby for Scarborough/Robin Hoods Bay and all other destinations along the East Coast. Local taxis are in abundance but some charge more than others so be careful, Abbey Taxis I believe are quite good and fixed price once quoted.
