Travel Tips for Whitby


by Sjalen

Whitby's main beach actually has a Blue Flag which is a vast improvement from how it used to be along the Yorkshire coast. The beach is a great place to spend a sunny day, especially with children, and you can buy kites, buckets and all sorts of other fun in kiosks on the way there. Just bear in mind the tidal warning (see tip) as the tide is fast. On really good days, these donkeys are there for children to ride on, just as normal in an English seaside resort.

Generous portions

by jduck1979 about Alexander's Fish Restaurant

The place is basically a traditional British fish&chip restaurant..... perhaps not quite as prestigious as the famous Magpie Cafe, or as smartly fitted out...... but the food from here is one of the best in town (and possibly the most spacious).... of the few window seats (opposite the take-out counter), there's a pretty good view looking out towards the Swing Bridge, Harbour, East Cliff + Whitby Abbey.

Service is pretty good, and you don't get the nightmarishly long queues as you do over at the Magpie Cod & Chips to take away (£3.50)......... for this, you get a generous portion of chips...... and precariously balanced on top a piece of Cod, deep fried in crispy batter (fish moist inside) and as big as my forearm!.... not like that frozen pish you buy in cardboard cartons from the supermarket..... if your surfing into this website from somewhere where Cod isn't regularly on the menu, and don't know what one is... look up a species of fish called the "Atlantic Cod" (Gadus Morhua).

A Long and Difficult Past

by keeweechic

The original site contained the shrine of St Hilda, the foundress who died in 680.AD. and miracles were reported at her tomb. Her shrine was demolished, in AD 800, when Whitby Abbey was pillaged by the Danes; but her body apparently was recovered from the ruins by King Edmund the Magnificent in the 10th century and given to the Abbey of Glastonbury in Somerset where the were revered until the Reformation.

Whitby Jet

by kitkat1980

Whitby Jet is famous for its smooth texture and its beautifil black colour. It originates from the monkey puzzle tree, and is now made into stunning jewellry. If your lucky you may be able to find some along the rocks on the beach. (note the beach isnt really a beach , its very small and rocky).

There is also a small whitby jet museum at the base of the steps from the abbey, its worth a quick visit and is free, you can see jet in its original form and the way its made into the jewellry. Its only a very small building but its worth a five minute visit.

Whitby Whalebones

by Britannia2

These famous whale bones commemorate the whaling industry in the town from the 18th and 19th centuries.
The original Whale jaw bone arch was erected some time after 1853 and is now displayed in the Whitby Archives and Heritage Centre. A replica was presented to Whitby by Norway in 1963. The current replacement was donated by Alaska in April 2003 - Miss Alaska from the beauty world came to Whitby in that month to make the donation.
The bones have to be replaced every 30 years or so because of the elements taking their toll on the bones.
