Welcome to Whitby, a perfect British seaside spot boasting a whole lot of fun things to do. In Whitby, an idyllic former fishing town nestled on the North Yorkshire coast, expect a dramatic coastline, soft stretches of caramel sand, exquisite seafood, a quaint harbour and more quirky charm than you can shake a stick at. From its spooky abbey and cliff-top graveyard to lamp-lit cobbled streets and whale bone monuments, it exudes more Gothic splendour than David Bowie in ‘The Hunger’. It’s no wonder Bram Stoker set his vampire-filled novel Dracula here, or that groups of black-clad music fans descend on the place twice a year for the Whitby Goth Weekend. Whether you visit in the summer for a sunny stroll along the beautiful Blue Flag beach, or in winter to shelter in a quirky pub with some steaming fish and chips, there’s plenty to sink your teeth into this town in England.
