    North East Weather

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Even in the summer here, it can get very rainy and cold, you just cant predict, so its always worthwhile bringing a water proof with you just in case.

    Whitby is also pretty much all cobbled streets, and has some steep roads, so its very advisable to wear sensible shoes (especially if you intend to walk the many steps up to the abbey)

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: There are many potential areas to walk in the area, and for those that are intrested it may be worthwhile bringing some sensible gear.

    Luggage and bags: A day sack to carry your waterproof/fleece etc.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Probably best to wear layers, so if the sun comes out unexpectedly, or if you've run up the 199 steps, you can cool off! Likewise, waterproof jacket/ fleece for those breezy/ rainy days.
    Fishermans gear/full diving suit for when the rains blowing in horizontally from the North Sea!!! ;-O

    As always, flat comfy shoes/trainers etc...steps and cobbled streets.
    flip flops etc for beach.
    Lots of charity shops in the town if you're caught short with unexpected change in the weather..bag a bargain and do some good at the same time!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Plenty of pharmacies etc.
    Boots carry a good selection of toiletries, and have a pharmacy, with pharmacist to give advice.

    Photo Equipment: Plenty of places to buy film, etc.
    The shop in the photo offers developing etc.
    The lady in the shop was very helpful.

    Disposable cameras can be bought cheaply in lots of outlets.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Souvenir shops etc, sell beach games and equipment..bucket & spades, flip flops/sun hats.
    Outdoor shops around Church Street, and in the town area. Check out the sales..some bargains can be had

    Miscellaneous: Bag of loose change...for the slot machines!

    Plastic bags, for beachcombing souvenirs.

    Luggage and bags: Something easy to carry, as the Terrain round these parts is seriously endowed with steep hills.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: 3:1 Jacket (Fleece / Outershell)
    Anything but sandals to wear on your feet, as people don't always clean up after their dogs & horses!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Nothing special

    Photo Equipment: Any half decent 35mm film camera, or a digital camera will usually suffice.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Comfy walking shoes are a must as is the inevitable raincoat and umbrella. You never know if you'll need one or the other.

    Photo Equipment: Bring your camera which is capable of a wide angle shot or you'll have to stand quite far away from the Abbey to get a decent pic of it.
