Whitby lies on the east coast of England. It's a very pretty fishermen town with a great long sandy beach and beautiful colourful changing rooms at the beach.
On top of the hill there is an old abby. It's a bit gost like with the old graveyard and the ruines of the abby and all you can hear is the wind blowing...
If you travel there by train I recommend you to check the time tables first. Otherwise you might end up spending 4 hours in Middlesbrough since there are only about 4 trains going to Witsand a day... But it was worth it!!

If ever you're driving on the coast road north from Whitby drive carefully through Hinderwell. You'll come across a sign for Port Mulgrave. Drive down Rosedale Lane and you'll come across one of the best views in Yorkshire. It's even better if you walk to Staithes or Runswick Bay.

A few miles away from Whitby on the coast there's the beautiful little village of Runswick Bay. There's only a few houses, one pub and a beach here ... and it's so beautiful and quiet here that I'd love to have a summer house here ;-)

This picturesque little village is well worth a stop if you're in the area. Park your car at the top of the hill in the carpark and head down the walkway on the hillside. You'll see dozens of homes perched on the hill with little walkways leading to them. I'd hate to try and move in or out of them, you can't get a vehicle very close to them.
After wandering by the homes take a walk along the beach, admiring the scenery, looking for fossels in the rocks and just playing about in the sand with a bucket and spade. It's quite a lovely area.
When you're ready for a drink there is a small cafe overlooking the beach which offers various refreshments including ice cream.

Climb up to the abbey, stand and watch don't forget to watch out for Dracula's ship coming in.
Romantic but a bit scary.

In the old town there is a sign saying "Argument Yard" at an entrance to a back yard. I have no idea what the yard is all about but I loved the "funny picture opportunity"...

On the coast, betwixt Whitby and Scarborough. Spooky little village where they still build Whicker Men.
