Pannett Park, Whitby
(4.5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy urban tranquility at Pannett Park, built on land purchased by local philanthropist and politician Robert Pannett in 1902. This public park, which includes an art gallery and a museum, is a favorite leisure spot for locals and visitors alike. Set a little time aside for a visit to Whitby Museum, which narrates the city’s fascinating history and displays the famous "Hand of God" (a dried and pickled hand of a man hanged for committing murder). Walk out onto the museum’s terrace to enjoy views of the city and the iconic Whitby Abbey. The park is also noted for its manicured gardens, sprawling green lawns, and wooded areas. Take a look at our Whitby itinerary maker to schedule your visit to Pannett Park and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Really lovely park with fantastic museum and art gallery. Really enjoyed it.
  • History, tranquility and views to boot. A lovely park.
  • great place to visit, the childrens play area is excellent and the gallery and museum are well worth a look. Only thing wrong is it can be difficult for disabled and parents with babies in buggies or prams as the park is built around the banks of a very large hill
  • Great playground and also the amazing Whitby museum
  • Nice outdoor play area but be warned that dogs aren't allowed in the park which is a shame.
