Things To Do in Whitby

The house is within easy walking distance of Whitby town centre, so you can pop to the shops any time, or head for one of the many pubs, cafes and eateries to plan your days out or unwind when you come back. The natural harbour drops dramatically in between cliffs, so there are some excellent views to be had from on high. East Cliff in particular is worth exploring, with its glowering gothic ruins of Whitby Abbey a reminder of its inspiration for castle Dracula. Also here are the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, which is especially good for older children.

There are 199 steps down (or up) the cliff to the harbour, where you can cross the bridge to explore Whitby town, including the Dracula Experience, and head to the 3km long dog friendly Whitby Beach, along to the peaceful retreat at Sandsend. Back in the centre of town, Pannett Park houses the Whitby Museum, which is full of reminders of the town’s unique history and local importance as a fishing port and starting point for maritime voyages.

Join the train at Whitby Station (or hop in the car), and follow the River Esk into the North York Moors National Park, home of one of the country’s biggest areas of heather moorland. There are hundreds of miles of tracks and trails to follow, from challenging climbs to extremely peaceful walks. There are dramatic waterfalls to discover, including the Mallyan Spout, and untouched villages like Goathland, famous as being Aidensfield, home of the tv series Heartbeat.

Last Word

Destiny Rose is designed to be comfortable, from its big leather sofas to shelves full of books for those who want to really relax. It also has useful features such as the dog flap out of the utility room, with wooden and paved flooring throughout the ground floor so you won’t be worried about muddy paws. The central location means Whitby is there to be explored, from its dramatic views and charming harbour to the original, steep cobbled streets you won’t find in many English seaside towns.

For foodies, Whitby boasts many independent eateries, with seafood cuisine from many cultures, as well as its own legendary freshly caught fish and chips. History and literature buffs will love the connections to Dracula and the real past, while you might be taken aback by the thousands of goths who visit the town annually. Between the Captain Cook and Whitby museums, there is plenty to stimulate the mind.

For the body, the cliff climbs can test people’s fitness, although there are plenty of stopping points. Whitby Beach, meanwhile, is a couple of miles of unspoilt, dog friendly sand which everyone can enjoy. Take in the North York Moors or explore the coast further to Scarborough and Filey. In the evening, your own private courtyard awaits to round of the day.
