Whitby travel tips

Best time to visit Whitby

From the busy summertime streets filled with events, cultural and music festivals and street-side entertainment, to the lively Christmas markets and year-end festivities, Whitby is a perfect short stay destination. Peak tourist times usually coincide with the school holidays in July – August and in December – January. Winter temperatures can drop to 1 degree Celsius, while peak summer temperatures do not go beyond 21 degrees Celsius. Like any other typical English town, it can rain at any time of the year, so remember to pack your umbrella whenever you visit Whitby.

Getting around Whitby

Whitby is such a compact town that despite the slightly hilly terrain, it is easy and rewarding to explore the town on foot. There is not much parking available, hence driving around town is not a very attractive option. To access the nearby villages, the local bus services operated by Arriva Bus offer good connectivity and frequency. Fares vary by distances covered. There are a few taxi operators in Whitby and you may have to pre-book your taxi to ensure timely transport. There are several cycling routes in Whitby and you can hire bikes from plenty of shops located all over town. You can also hop on a double-decker bus operated by Whitby Town Open-Top Bus Tour. The tour takes you around all the popular tourist spots of Whitby town. A 24-hour ticket costs £6.50 GBP.

Where to stay in Whitby

Best places to stay in Whitby

Spread out on both sides of the River Esk, Whitby is a town with multiple personalities. You will find a busy fishing port with a vibrant quayside fish market on one side, and a classic holiday destination with scenic beaches, promenades and entertainment on the other. The town’s quaint, cobblestone streets feature red-terraced houses with white stone steps. The town also has its share of fresh seafood restaurants and cosy fire-lit taverns. It is every bit a classic English town, almost straight out of a novel!

Whitby Town Centre and Harbour

The bell-topped town hall and cobblestone square hosts many cafés and tea houses, exuding a historic vibe and charm. Book a stay at the Bagdale Hall Hotel spread over a 16th century manor and 2 Georgian-era townhouses in the heart of Whitby, just a 3-minute walk from the Whitby train station. You can also look at the bright, airy rooms of The Langley hotel, set in an 1850s house on the West Cliff, just a 3-minute walk from Whitby Beach. On the harbour front, you have stylish modern rooms with excellent sea views at The Marine Hotel on Marine Parade. Subtly-styled rooms and a relaxed harbour side ambience mark The Angel Hotel on New Quay Road.

Whitby Abbey

East of town, across the River Esk, the area around Whitby Abbey offers unbeatable views of the vast North Sea. This is also a relatively quiet and less crowded area. Experience the heritage and essence of Whitby when you stay at the White Horse & Griffin, one of the oldest and most iconic properties on the east side of town. Or you can try the Sanders Yard, a homely bed and breakfast located off Church Street with an eclectic mix of clean and cosy rooms and cottages.

North York Moors National Park

This lush green area offers a few luxurious accommodation options with countryside charm. Near the edge of North York Moors National Park you have the beautiful property of Dunsley Hall Country House Hotel featuring 4 acres of manicured lawns and stunning views of Sandsend Beach. Or, opt for rustic charm combined with a relaxed ambience in The Stables at Cross Butts, a bed and breakfast on Guisborough Road.

Cheap hotels in Whitby
