Whitby is a seaside town in Yorkshire, northern England, split by the River Esk.
On the East Cliff, overlooking the North Sea, the ruined Gothic Whitby Abbey was Bram Stoker’s inspiration for “Dracula”. Nearby is the Church of St. Mary, reached by 199 steps. The Captain Cook Memorial Museum, in the house where Cook once lived, displays paintings and maps. West of town is West Cliff Beach, lined with beach huts. Whitby is great for a holiday, or short break, and Robin's Rest self catering appartment is ideally located for you to enjoy Whitby.
With its cobbled lanes leading to a handsome harbour, fishing trawlers sailing past lifeboat cruises, and rickety pubs jostling for position alongside lively bars, Whitby is a town of endless charm and surprising contrasts.
Whitby is a town of two halves, divided in two by the harbour and the River Esk Estuary. The older part of the town, located on the East bank, is a jumble of narrow mediaeval streets, while the newer town is found on the opposite bank.
There's lots to see and do in Whitby with fantastic beaches, a fishing port and great unique shops to enjoy - all a short distance from Robin's Rest.
