Travel Tips for Whitby

Abbey Angles

by sandysmith

The ruins of Whitby Abbey standing proud on the east cliffs also attracts many visitors visitors The late afternon sun on one of its remaining portals was lovely. Another visit here and I would spend more time with my camera searching out some more interesting angles ;-)

Runswick Bay

by sabsi

A few miles away from Whitby on the coast there's the beautiful little village of Runswick Bay. There's only a few houses, one pub and a beach here ... and it's so beautiful and quiet here that I'd love to have a summer house here ;-)

The Grand Turk

by keith750cc

The Grand Turk is a replica of a sailing ship from the 18th Century, and I was told it featured in the TV series Hornblower, however it has a bit of a difference, its powered by diesel engines, but in most other respects its very authentic, not that Im an expert. You have to pay to come aboard and I'm not 100% sure, but I think it was only berthed at Whitby for the winter, so check before you go.

Moors Centre, Danby

by Britannia2

Originally the Centre was Dawnay Lodge, a family home used by Sir John Dawnay, 1st Viscount Downe. Built of locally quarried sandstone, dressed in the traditional herringbone fashion, the building has recently been renovated internally and externally.

John Dawnay, (later the first viscount – 1681) bought Danby Manor (23,000 acres) and in due course grouse shooting was developed over the common lands. In order to accommodate the family, their guests and servants of the shooting parties, Dawnay Lodge was substantially adapted and expanded and became known as Danby Lodge.
The Lodge was transformed into The Moors Centre in 1976 by the North York Moors National Park. The popular Centre welcomes as many as 130,000 visitors a year as well as providing a base for 11,000 young people discovering more about this special area.
About 7 miles from Whitby.

Facilities include gifts, books and map shop, tea room, information centre, lecture theatre, school studies centre and offices. Car parking is available and there are many excellent and varied walks onto the moors, Danby Castle or along the River Esk.
Many varied organised events at very reasonable prices - on the day we visited a guide was taking people out on an adder hunting afternoon.

Whitby Abbey

by suvanki

One of Whitbys most famous landmarks!

Most of the building work seen today is from the 12th and 13th centuries, but St Hildas Abbey was originally founded in 657, where the Synod of Whitby had bound English Christianity to that of Western Europe in 644.

The Abbey housed both men and women, and was destroyed by the Danes in 867. The Danes then renamed the Anglo Saxon town of Streonshalh, Whitby! and began to colonise the Esk Valley.

Farmers, trades and craftsmen migrated from Scandinavia to Whitby, and following conversion to Christianity built churches in the area.

In the 11th century the Abbey was re-established for the Benedictine order, housing about 40 monks.

Today, visitors can learn more about the history in the new visitors centre.
Although I've not been into the centre, there are displays recording the development of the town, and its famous inhabitants, plus archeological finds, audio tours, interactive playcentre and tea room.

At weekends, costumed guides are on hand!

Open 1/4/04-30/9/04 daily 10-6pm
1/10 - 31/3/05 Th-Mon 10 - 4pm
closed 24 - 26/12 1/1/05

I'll find out the dates for 2005 ASAP! but guess they're not too different!
