4 Reasons To Visit Whitby

From the atmospheric Abbey towering over cobbled streets to the windswept beach and bustling harbour, this is not your “traditional” coastal town and a wonderful corner of the country to delve into throughout the year, especially when the sun is shining. Here are just a handful of reasons to visit Whitby this summer and make the most of the warmer weather.

1. The History to Uncover 

One of the most visited sites on the North Yorkshire Coast are the ruins of Whitby Abbey. Beautiful to behold and steeped in heritage. You can also follow in the footsteps of voyager Captain James Cook and board the HMS Endeavour.

2. The Fabulous Fish and Chips

As befits a British seaside town, Whitby is crammed with wonderful fish and chip shops and because it’s a working port, the catch is a fresh as you can get.

3. The Stunning Coastline

The surrounding scenery is both wild and sedate, offering something for everyone. There’s a family friendly bay providing the full seaside experience, colourful beach huts and a golden coastline that stretches to Sandsend.

4. The Warm Welcome

Our spacious Whitby-based apartment has room for up to six guests. Spread across three floors, Keldergat was named after the WWII cargo ship Skeldergate and is a pet-friendly property in the heart of the town. We have space for a break this August and September with short stays starting from £105pp!!
