The Ropery

Records show that, many years ago, there was indeed a rope-making business near this Whitby street. There are many other roads with quirky names in Whitby, like Fish Road, Hell Lane, Paradise Row and Stompie Close!

199 Steps

If you’ve got the puff, climb the 199 steps to the abbey for glorious views across town out to sea, and a chance to see the ghoulish ruins up close. It’s also a good excuse for a fish n’ chip dinner when you climb back down.

Beach

There two beaches here in Whitby, Whitby Beach and West Cliff Beach. They come to life with deckchairs and donkey rides in summer, and are smashing spots for a stroll with a bundle of fish n’ chips under your arm.

Spring Hill

One of Whitby’s many residential, 19th century roads – this one passes by the station and the local hospital, and takes its name from actual springs of water that once bubbled nearby.

Oystons Yard

Hidden among Whitby’s jiggly streets are a number of ‘yards’ – small, neatly-kept spaces and narrow alleys that date back to medieval times, with oddball names like ‘Arguments Yard’!

Beach Huts

Take a turn along Whitby’s seafront and you’ll spot a row of classic, brightly-coloured beach huts. You might also notice holidaymakers sporting socks and sandles – another great British tradition.

Graham the Gull

If you find yourself in Whitby, you’ll quickly become acquainted with our local mob of seagulls. These fellas are a confident bunch, who strut around like they own the place. They were the inspiration for Graham the Gull – the cheeky seagull on our packs!
