  • Good old lighthouse placed on the West Pier. You can go inside and up to the top which has a balcony with brilliant views of Whitby. It is a narrow and steep staircase which is awkward if somebody wants to pass you. Mind your head at the top. Well worth it for £1.50
  • Although the weather wasn’t brilliant yesterday there’s always something to see going on in and around Whitby Harbour I was taking some photos the choice is endless
  • Love going to Whitby for a meal and a walk around the historic town
  • 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.
  • Excellent place to be Don't let the seagulls nick your icecream they got mine!
