A brief introduction to Whitby, North York Moors..

 

Whitby is a historical town, situated in the North York Moors, 47 miles away from York, in North Yorkshire on the north-east coast of England. It is at the mouth of Esk River and spreads up the steep sides of the narrow valley carved out by the river's course. Whitby's skyline is dominated by the cliff-top ruins, of St. Hilda's Abbey. Lying below Whitby has narrow streets, picturesque houses and sandy blue flag beach, and is nestled on a spectacular stretch of coast with sensational cliffs and bays. 199 steps lead up from the old town of Whitby to the parish church of St. Mary, where famous writer Bram Stoker took inspiration from to create the character of 'Dracula'.

 

Whitby has a unique charm which has been crafted over many centuries. Whitby has provided a safe haven for shipping and fishing fleets and Whitby was once the chief whaling port in Northern England. A huge whale bone tourist can walk right under displays a testament to their fishing heritage. A fish market is available here on the quayside that is never on any particular day just simply when the need arises.  This tourist trade and ready supply of fresh fish has resulted in many lovely Fish ā€™nā€™ chips shops around the town.

 

 

Expect all the things that will make you stay enjoyable as possible Whitby has everything plus more amenities than its other national park rivals; a library, banks, museums, art galleries, shops of essential commodities, well-furnished restaurants and cafes, all harbour facilities (also boat launching). It also has Whitby Station on the Middlesbrough to Whitby link line.
