Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 500+ 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.
