Whitby is well-known as a great British holiday destination. Considered to be one of the best seaside resorts in Britain, it simply can’t be beat for a weekend break. You can start your getaway by taking a stroll along the marina, or stopping in at several of the chippies serving fresh fish and chips. If you enjoy the coastline, try taking a coastal cruise or boat tour.

However, Whitby isn’t just known for the seaside and fresh seafood. It has a rich history worth exploring during your visit. History lovers will enjoy visiting heritage sites such as Whitby Abbey, St. Mary’s Church, or the Whitby Museum. Fans of folk music will love Whitby Folk Week. Those who love sailing should visit in August for the Whitby Regatta. If you’re after fashionable souvenirs, there are stores that sell the jet jewellery that Whitby became known for during the Victorian era.

Whether you’re visiting by yourself, with friends or family, or with your partner, Whitby offers something for everyone to enjoy.
