The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Things to do

Whitby has a fascinating history that has left behind many attractions for those visiting the area, most obviously the towering ruins of Whitby Abbey, occupying a glorious headland site above the town. After climbing the 199 steps to its base (counting as you go) you can enjoy outstanding views of the town and harbour below. Other historic points of interest include the Captain Cook Monument, Scarborough Castle and a handful of museums. For most, of course, it is the landscape that draws them in, with fantastic beaches along the dramatic coastline, as well as the North York Moors National Park right on the doorstep. This region is therefore a top spot for hiking and cycling, making the most of Whitby's fabulous location.
