Whitby is the perfect base for a family holiday with Blue Flag beaches on both sides of the River Esk. On the east side is a sheltered sandy beach and on the west side is a larger sandy beach with colourful beach huts, a children's paddling pool and donkey rides. From its historic harbour galleons still sail, as well as fishing boats, pleasure boats and lifeboats. There are quirky shops to visit, narrow streets to uncover, jewellery made from Jet to be seen in shops which still mine it, kippers to be sampled at shops which still smoke them, 199 steps to climb to an ancient abbey, and a park to explore for those who are curious!
Take our fabulous walks of discovery, and have fun finding answers to clues which tell you more, whilst reading our stories about the most interesting facts.
