  • Excellent place to be Don't let the seagulls nick your icecream they got mine!
  • Went in the late afternoon so no sign of the charge others have mentioned. If you're hot I highly recommend it as the wind is bitter. It's a good way of seeing just how far the boat rides actually go too.

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.
