Local attractions

Historic Whitby

Walk the twisty cobbled streets to curious little shops, count the steps on the climb up to Whitby Abbey, or visit the Captain Cook museum.

Eden Camp

Take a trip inland to this original WWII prisoner of war camp museum just outside Malton.

Take the train

With daily services between Whitby and Pickering this is a wonderful way to enjoy this part of Yorkshire. Check out the website for special events.

Visit Scarborough

Spend a few hours at the original spa seaside resort of Scarborough, take some pennies into the arcades or walk around the castle and headland.

Castle Howard

Quite simply a great day out! Located in the beautiful Howardian Hills, Castle Howard is one of Britain’s finest stately homes. Explore the house and the 1000 acres of parkland and/or enjoy one of the many events from the ever-changing programme.

A day in York

There’s plenty to see and do in York – from a walk around the City Walls and afternoon tea at Betty’s to the glories of the Minster, the Castle Museum, or the National Railway Museum. York is about an hour and ten minute drive from Whitby.
