Travel Tips for Whitby

by keeweechic

Whitby Folk Week is a week long festival held in August which lasts a week and has over 600 events. This festival features the traditional music, dance and song as well as storytelling of the British Isles & Ireland.

River cruises

by Britannia2

This famous yellow boat takes visitors out on 25 minute boat rides in to the bay or on longer trips out to Sandsend and Staithes. There are also sunset and twilight cruises.
The boat leaves its landing stage at Brewey Steps at set times through the day starting at 10.15 in the morning.
There is undercover seating should the weather be wet and refreshments are available.

A walk along the West Pier

by jduck1979

We have two piers here in Whitby, jutting out into the sea..... the West Pier is in the better condition of the two, and has a lighthouse you can climb to the top of (for a small fee) on some days in the summer.... and further on an extension (closed when the weather is crap, and the sea rough as a result).

Along the stone main part of the pier (with concrete paving) you'll see some arty-farty type person has been engraving dinosaur fossils into the concrete...... and the scenary is stunning: on one side, you have the East Cliff, with the Abbey + the TV transmitter (which is soon to be relocated before it falls off the edge of the bloody cliff)........ on the other, is the view across the bay, along Whiby Beach towards Sandsend / "Sandsend Ness" (the sticky out cliff bit, according to the Ordanance survey map, that's what it's called).
After the lighthouse comes the Pier Extension..... the top part of which is a surefire cure for constipation if you don't like heights, as the surface consists of boards like railway sleepers with 1cm gaps between 'em. At the end (below the green tower thingy) is some steps down to the concrete lower part of the extension, which is a pretty good place to sea fish (seem to get bigger crabs than near the swing bridge there).... while there's a view out to sea that's seems never ending, but I think it's about level with Denmark on the world atlas, viewing range I estimate at about 15-20miles going by an Oil Exploration rig they had 13miles out to sea about 10+ years ago.

Market Hall

by sandysmith

In the midst of the narrow street leading to the steps taking you upwards to the church and Abbey is the lovely quaint market hall. Stalls are squeezed into the tiny area in front of it - always a bottle neck with tourists.

Whale Bones

by kitkat1980

Whitby used to be a harbour in which whaling boats set sail. They would sell out with about 8 men in and if they were to return succesfull would hoist whale jaw bones to the mast in order to indicate the boat was full. In order to remember this part of the history of the town Thor of Norway presented the whale bone arch to whitby in 1963.

There isnt much to see here, but its worth the short walk if your on this side of the town. It has some stunning views over the harbour and is a great photo oppurtunity.
