#3 of 8 in Parks in Whitby
Nature / Park
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.

Where to stay in Whitby

The majority of the town's lodging is near the small harbor at the town center. Consider a guest room in one of the historical buildings that line the water or on one of the narrow streets that branch off from the boardwalk. For views of the picturesque town and the cathedral, consider lodging inland and up the hill. Ask about themed rooms designed for the Whitby Gothic Weekend.

  • This park runs the length of the road and is surprisingly quiet, built on a slope and quite attractive with various flower beds and picnic and sunbathing areas  more »
  • A few minutes walk out of town but lovely spot for a picnic. Well cared for and a lovely place to just relax.  more »
  • We have been to Whitby lots of time but never seen Pannett park, was pleasantly surprised. A green oasis near the Harbor.  more »

  • Lovely park near the harbor of Whitby. Lots of things to see as you walk along and if you start at the bottom and work up you reach the museum/play area and come out at the top of the west cliff - great short cut.
  • A hidden gem in Whitby. Away from the main tourist area and quite peaceful. Well kept gardens and viewing areas. Some of the pathways are a little steep however.
  • Great children's play area with lots of diverse equipment not seen in many other parks.
  • Great park for a wander and a fab kids play area at the top
  • Great modern well maintained park for Children and adults
