Travel Tips for Whitby

Come prepared for all weathers!

by suvanki

A day sack to carry your waterproof/fleece etc. Probably best to wear layers, so if the sun comes out unexpectedly, or if you've run up the 199 steps, you can cool off! Likewise, waterproof jacket/ fleece for those breezy/ rainy days.
Fishermans gear/full diving suit for when the rains blowing in horizontally from the North Sea!!! ;-O

As always, flat comfy shoes/trainers etc...steps and cobbled streets.
flip flops etc for beach.
Lots of charity shops in the town if you're caught short with unexpected change in the weather..bag a bargain and do some good at the same time! Plenty of pharmacies etc.
Boots carry a good selection of toiletries, and have a pharmacy, with pharmacist to give advice. Plenty of places to buy film, etc.
The shop in the photo offers developing etc.
The lady in the shop was very helpful.

Disposable cameras can be bought cheaply in lots of outlets. Souvenir shops etc, sell beach games and equipment..bucket & spades, flip flops/sun hats.
Outdoor shops around Church Street, and in the town area. Check out the sales..some bargains can be had Bag of loose change...for the slot machines!

Plastic bags, for beachcombing souvenirs.

Time For Lunch

by hayward68 about Bridge Cafe

This cafe is a typical diner style serving up foods such as fish and chips, nothing special but good, filling food. I had the £5.95 fish and chips and it was quite nice, not greasy like some fish that you get.

Its a long trek....

As I had just had a fall two days before and hurt my leg (no I had'nt been drinking!) I did not think I would make it. But going down was not too bad!

Running adjacent to the steps is a steep cobbled path which is called Donkey Road.

Ruins of St. Hilda's Abbey

by sabsi

OK I admit it. I was too lazy to walk up the 199 steps to the ruins on East Cliff. As I have enough steps at home and the gambling halls sounded way too tempting I gave it a miss and did my zoom do the work.

The ruins look lovely though, so does the graveyard and St. Marys Church. I think I should have gone. Oh well ... next time!

Captain Cook Memorial Museum

by suvanki

Although I didn't get to look around the museum at my last visit, it's something I hope to do at a later date.

In 1776 James Cook resided in the attic of this house along with other apprentices of the Quaker Ship owner Captain John Walker.
The house was built in 1688.

The museum tells the story of Cooks life, with many original exhibits of letters, prints and paintings. Rooms are set out in faithful reproductions of the era.

open March - weekends 1100 - 1500
April - October 09 45 - 1700 daily
