Travel Tips for Whitby

Grand Turk

by sandysmith

Although the replica ship "Endeavour was not in Whitby during our visit the Grand Turk was.
Construction of thes ship began in January 1997 and was launched from Marmaris, Turkkey, 12th August 1997. The ship was used in the first series of Hornblower - a British TV drama. Its quite a big ship and Steve and I spent several minutes trying to outdo each other on the perfect reflection shot. Well this was my best effort!

99's and Parmesans and Rock

by kitkat1980

I still dont know if you can get these elsewhere you certainly can 99's but parmesans seem to be a middlesbrough specific thing however I have seen one in a takeaway at whitby.

Firstly a 99 is an ice cream cone, with vanilla ice cream topped with a cadburys flake- originally named as they cost 99p but no anymore! Also try a lemon top - simply its a lemon sauce/ice creams ontop of your vanilla ice cream.

Whitby rock is lovely - you will find it all over in the whitby shops - try John Bulls Stores for the best stuff - Its extremly sugary and now comes in many flavours - li

A parmesan you will get from a takeaway pizza shop. A Parmo is a deep-fryed flattened chicken or pork fillet in an egg and breadcrumb batter, smothered in Bechamel sauce, topping off with (usually cheddar or sometimes parmesan) cheese and then grilling or baking in the pizza oven.

Whitby Abbey

by keeweechic

Henry VIII dissolved the monasteries in 1536 which resulted in the destruction of the Abbey in 1539 however Part of the church still stands on a cliff overlooking Whitby town as a vivid monument to the Benedictine monks. Further extensive damage to the Abbey was registered in 1914 when German surface raiders sneaked across the North Sea and shelled the towns of Scarborough, Whitby and Hartlepool. The Abbey you see today was built on the site of the original Abbey brought about by an abbess named Hild in the seventh century. She was later canonised. Although the Abbey is today a gaunt reminder of what a magnificent building it once was, St Mary’s has survived and still continues to be used by locals.

I you have enough ‘puff’, you can approach it by 199 steps from Whitby town which were first mention over 600 years ago when they were built of wood. Shipwrights rebuilt the roof in 1819 and put in skylights which resembled those set into a deck.

Endeavour

by sabsi

A small replica of Cook's ship - the Endeavour - is cruising around the bay at Whitby taking tourists on a choppy cruise out to the North Sea.

Apparently an original sized replica visits Whitby from time to time. It would be nice to see it some day!

Harbour & Swing Bridge area

by jduck1979

The area of harbour between the Tourist Information Centre & Marine Parade (section of harbour wall that spits you out nr the "Pier Inn") is a pretty scenic place to take a walk, though it helps to stay alert for Aerial bombardment from incontinent Seagulls & food items (and other things not so pleasant) dropped on the ground.
Part way along it is the Swing Bridge, which dates back to 1909, and joins the West side of Town to the East Side of Town. On the West side, next to the Bridge is a lowered section of pavement with some benches - this is a popular place to fish for crabs with a handline (though I prefer to use a spinning rod, to get more control), great for getting the kids started off fishing before letting them try for more delicate species (and damn good fun, too).
The Bridge gives you a great view across where the Yorkshire River Esk spews out into the North Sea, but stay alert for Traffic.
Along the way, you'll find the area lined with plenty of Shops & Pubs, along with "The Dracula Experience" on Marine Parade..... and if you're into Architecture and all that, you'll probably think you've died and gone to heaven.
