Northern England region

The Surrounding Areas

STAITHES - This quaint and unspolit fishing village consists of cottages huddled together on steep cliffs over looking a tiny harbour. Captain Cook lived here at the age of seventeen while he was an apprentice to a grocer and draper in a shop.

ROBIN HOODS BAY - Robin Hoods Bay on the coast off the Whitby to Scarborough road is a picturesque and historic village notorious for its smuggling history. Smuggling was rife and many of the buildings have secret passageways so that contraband could be passed secretly from the bottom of the village to the top without going outside. The narrow winding streets and alleys conceal many beautiful cottages. The haphazard positions of the cottages attract many photographers and artists.

RUNSWICK BAY - Eight miles north of Whitby, this attractive little seaside village with its white painted cottages and red roofed cottages perched in improbable positions on the steep hill side is a favourite spot sailing enthusiasts, water skiers and artists.

RAVENSCAR - From the high peak of Ravenscar you can take in the dramatic views of Robin Hoods Bay. This could be called the town that never was. A series of streets lead nowhere and there are a few houses dotted about.


Local Amenities

Whitby offers miles of sandy beaches, fishing trips from the harbour and many specialists' shops filled with crafts, antiques, artist's shops, maritime memorabilia and handmade local jet jewellery. The town has two sides which is divided by the River Esk. Both sides are very different which provides a fantastic contract for all visitors. For food connoisseurs, Whitby has it all to suit varying tastes - award winning sea food restaurants, continental delights, olde worlde English tea rooms and traditional sea-shanty inns / pubs serving local produce. For those dining at home there are supermarkets and many local shops around the area. The main Post Office in Whitby is inside the Co-op on Langborne Road. A taxi rank is situated adjacent to the Tourist Information Centre. The bus and train station are only a short distance away.


Whitby is a small town which has its own character and picturesque charm based on its spectacular history as a seaport. The town is famous for its rich cultural and architectural heritage:- its 7th century Abbey, its yards, ancient alleyways, cobbled side streets, Captain Cook's seafaring life and Bram Stoker was so inspired by Whitby that he chose it as a back drop for his classic Novel Dracula.

WHITBY ABBEY - The remains of the earliest monastery stands high on the headland above the picturesque harbour.

ST MARY'S CHURCH - Situated beneath the Abbey on the East Cliff. There are services held here in the summer and on special occasions e.g.. Christmas.

199 STEPS - These steps connect the Abbey and St. Mary's Church on the cliff to the town below.

WHALEBONE ARCH - On the West Cliff stands a bronze statue of Captain Cook which over looks the arch of whalebone jaws recalling the whaling industry in the town.

GRAPE LANE - A winding cobbled street on the east side of Whitby with quaint shops and restaurants. Here you will also find the Captain Cook Memorial Museum where you can see displays and models relating to his life and where he lodged in the attic of John Walkers house whilst serving as an apprentice. Whitby Archives also situated in Grape Lane has a collection of pictorial material of old Whitby.

PANNETT PARK - The Pannett Park grounds, museum and gallery were a gift of Whitby solicitor Robert Pannett. The park occupies a sloping, well-landscaped site overlooking the town and harbour, with views across to the Abbey ruins and St. Mary's Church.

WHITBY MUSEUM - In the middle of Pannett Park, the museum contains Captain Cook's artefacts, model ships, information about whjaling and collections of fossils.

GRAND TURK - The Grand Turk , a replica fighting frigate which features in the TV series Hornblowermakes regular visits to Whitby.

WHITBY REGATTA - Whitby Regatta is possibly the oldest sea regatta in England and has regularly drawn large crowds into the town. There is a large selection of entertainment for both children and adults - inflatable maze, pirate ship, yacht racing and parachute display.

WHITBY LEISURE CENTRE - The centre is situated on the west cliff and is open all year round. It has two pools, a fitness suite, sports hall, community room, an outdoor multi games area and sun beds.

VICTORIAN IMAGE - Step back in time and find out what you might have looked like in the Victorian days. The old time studio is situated in the heart of old Whitby.

THE SUTCLIFFE GALLERY - The gallery is home to a collection of photographs by the Victorian photographer Frank Meadow Sutcliffe.

DOODLEPOTS - Paint Your own pottery studio in Skinner Street.


CAEDMONS CROSS - On the path side of the Abbeys cliff top grave yard is the cross of Caedmon, an illiterate labourer who worked at the Abbey in the 7th century. He had a vision that inspired him to compose cantos of Anglo-Saxon religious verse still sung today.

WHITBY HARBOUR - The harbour is situated at the mouth of the River Esk. The arms of the entrance piers extend out to sea.

"Fabulous apartment with great views"

We have stayed at Seal View on numerous occasions and always have a great time. The apartment is spacious with 2 good size bedrooms, bathroom and large lounge/dining/kitchen area. The apartment overlooks the River Esk and has Abbey views.

It is in a good location with a 10 to 15 min walk into town. We have never encountered any problems during our stays at the property. There is undercroft parking available for one car. I would definitely recommend Seal View to all ages who want a modern, well positioned holiday apartment in Whitby.

"nicely presented, great outlook."

Stayed 2 nights early January at end of our 7 week holiday. Wish we had seen this earlier as would have stayed at least 4 nights. Great outlook from Unit and easy walk to town. Most car parking was free in any case being winter months and plenty car parking available if you wanted to drive into town. The unit was nicely presented, plenty of heating for cold nights and had a great outlook over the water. Price - excellent value for money given what we were paying during our travels. Easy drive to Goathland (heartbeat fans). Only booked night before sat so thank you to owner and caretaker for making the effort. No wifi but good service area for phone/internet access if you have mobile.

"Just what the Dr ordered"

Just had a knee replacement so a few days away was a nice break. The apartment is so well ordered and accessible (thank you lift!) it was a great weekend. Everything you need - spotlessly clean and very handy for all Whitby has to offer. Thank you

"Fantastic welcoming, secure, quiet apartment"

The apartment is extremely well decorated and furnished with all that you would need for a sort break or longer stay, the security of the buildings is fantastic and having private secure parking is great. The situation on the edge of the town is lovely and quiet, with stunning views of the estuary, Whitby and the Abbey and yet it's only a ten minute walk into town on the flat road side, so it's ideal for disabled guests, I would highly recommended the apartment and hope to return next year. The owners are extremely helpful.

"Lovely, modern, spacious apartment in a delightful setting."

I stayed here with one of my sisters and mother as my other sister decided to get married in Whitby (we all live in Lancashire) so we rented the apartment for the weekend.
We were delighted with the apartment and it looked even nicer than the pictures. It was in a pleasant area, with a nice view overlooking the harbour. Caroline had given us detailed information about the apartment and the area. The apartment had lots of equipment, even CDs and DVDs plus toys for anyone travelling with children. Plus the beds were really comfortable, and I got two perfect night's sleep. I would definitely stay again if I am in Whitby, and can recommend it to anyone visiting the area.
