Tiny little shop at the far end of the street leading up from the shopping area in Whitby. Don't expect big, all the house's and shops are tiny in this part of town. But, you don't need a big room to sell fantastic kippers. I bought two for £3.50, had them for breakfast with bread and butter, lovely!

This small smokehouse is a gem not only selling kippers but bacon, salmon and pate creating some great smells. Great value.

What can say? They take herring, and smoke them in the small smokehouse, and sell them from the small shop attached to it down a Whitby backstreet. It's nothing grand, but if you like good quality kippers (as opposed to those wet orange things you get in supermarkets) then it's well worth a visit. If you are down wind of... More

Visited here in February, in the middle of a snow storm! Fascinating shop, not anywhere near the size that is indicated on their web-site, and the smell of the kippers is just awesome! One tip for any potential visitors, make sure you take a cheque book or cash as they don't take cards. We didn't know this, and the owner... More

If you want to avoid the 199 steps to Whitby Abbey , there is another path that is less steep... More

This place is just amazing. It is the holy grail for kipper lovers! We tracked it down on an evening walk in Whitby. You can follow the signs from the bottom of the Abbey steps to Henrietta Street, or just follow your nose. We found the tiny little shop amongst houses and sure enough the kippers were being smoked overnight... More
