Whitby and the North Yorkshire Coast

Whitby attracts visitors from around the globe because of the wonderful mixture of coastal and countryisde scenery, maritime heritage, ancient history and proximity to a wide array of nearby attractions such as the North York Moors Steam Railway, historic York and Heartbeat Country.

Whitby is the jewel in the crown of the North Yorkshire Coast. Nestled between the tall cliffs at the mouth of the River Esk, Whitby has been inhabited since around 656AD. Nearly 1500 years of continuous habitation surely shows that there's something to the Whitby area which continues to draw people in and offer them something they don't find anywhere else!

From the dramatic position of the famous Whitby Abbey ruins on the East Cliff, to the magnificence of the sandy beach running 3 miles up the coast to Sandsend, no-one can say that our portion of coastline isn't beautifully rugged.
