Travel Tips for Whitby

St. Mary's Steps

by yooperprof

199 steps to the church! It shows the devotion of medieval Whitbeans that their most important local center of worship was a stiff climb from their dwelling places. In medieval Whitby, as throughout the rest of Europe, town-dwellers died young from disease and malnutrition - but at least they receive a good cardio workout every time they went to church!

(There's a half-way bench for those who need a rest on the way up.)

Sailing ship cruises

by Britannia2

This is exceptionally good value at £4 for adults and £2 for children and this replica of the sailing ship Endeavour takes visitors around the harbour (but not out to sea).
The ship is 40% of the size of Captain Cooks ship of that name but on the 30 minute trip you can gauge a little of what life was like on a sailing ship in Cooks time. The views from the ship are wonderful and the commentary on board good.

Whitby Abbey

by Lensmeister

Beautiful peaceful place. Situated on the cliff top of the East side. It is probably Whitby’s most visited attraction due its historical significance and heritage. The abbey dates back to the 7th Century when Oswy, King of Northumbria, sent a Northumbrian princess named Hilda to found an abbey. Today, Whitby Abbey contains a shrine to St. Hilda. The abbey has had a fascinating history, having been destroyed by the Vikings but rebuilt by the Normans, and is well worth visit.

Captain Cook

by Rachael71

Captain James Cook came from Whitby, and his four ships were built in the village. The house where Cooke was apprenticed as a young sailor is now a museum about his life and discoveries. A replica of his ship 'HMS Endeavour' is docked close to the tourist information centre and can also be visited, although as I recall the entry fee was quite steep.

Up or Down the 199 Steps

by jduck1979

Something of a tradition when visiting Whitby is a walk up (or down) the "199 Steps" that connects the cobbled section of Church Street (as usued in some movie called "POSSESSION") to St. Mary's ChurchYard at the top of the East Cliff...... and counting the Steps to see if there really are 199 of them (Though whenever I've tried it, I've only managed to count 197 of them).
