A return to the historic port town of Whitby, famous for its winding cobbled streets,fish and chips,vampires and its abbey towering above it all.

There will be a mixture of walks featuring some of the highest coastal cliffs in England,quaint fishing villages,remote locations within the North York Moors,waterfalls,peaceful Eskdale valley villages and a ride on its famous steam railway into its iconic TV heartbeat location of the Goathland Valley.

Depart Whitby

Be aware there is a 60's festival this weekend so if you struggle to find a B&B then it may be worth booking a cottage to share with
There are plenty available on this site - yorkshireholidaycottages.co.uk
For camping options I would suggest Broadings Farm Campsite just outside Whitby.
