About Whitby

Even getting to Whitby is amazing, with an up hill and down dale spectacular ride across the roof of the heather-hazed North Yorkshire Moors, and at the end an attractive, colourful town that huddles round a picturesque harbour, from where boats still go out to fish.

The jagged ruins of the Abbey rise above the town up on the cliff and there are steep steps up to reach it, but it’s well worth the climb. There’s plenty more to this town loved by Goths, with some very individualistic shops, good cafés and restaurants.

Arriva buses leave from here for Robin Hood’s Bay (route X93) in one direction or Staithes (route X4) in the other.
