Travel Tips for Whitby

A Local's guide to what Traveller's should bring

by jduck1979

Something easy to carry, as the Terrain round these parts is seriously endowed with steep hills. 3:1 Jacket (Fleece / Outershell)
Sweatshirt
Anything but sandals to wear on your feet, as people don't always clean up after their dogs & horses! Nothing special Any half decent 35mm film camera, or a digital camera will usually suffice.

Great Fish & Chips

by keeweechic about The Magpie Cafe

Lunch at Whitby was spent at Magpie Café, a distinctive black and white building overlooking the harbour and giving great views of the Abbey and St Mary’s Church. Originally built in 1750 as a merchant house. They are famous for their fish and chips… which exactly what we had.

Captain James Cook

by sabsi

Explorer Captain James Cook who lived from 1728 - 1779 was born in the small farming village of Marton just outside of Middlesborough. At the age of 18 he started his first journey at sea - on a Whitby collier carrying coal to London. He later lived and worked in Whitby for 7 years.

At West Cliff the town of Whitby you will find a sign pointing towards the destinations Cook sailed to. I was surprised the Cook Islands were missing...

James Cook Statue

by hayward68

This bronze statue, on the west cliff overlooking Whitby harbour, was erected in the memory of Captain James Cook and there are various plaques honouring him placed on the base of the statue. I saw one from Canada and also one from New Zealand.
The statue is the work of John Tweed and was unveiled in 1912 by Admiral Lord Charles Beresford.

Caedmon's Cross

by sandysmith

Caedmon was a 7th Century monk and was the earliest known English poet. This beautifully engraved cross will greet you at the top of those 199 steps. Spare a moment to have a look at its intricate carved detail before visiting the abbey.
