Home of fish and chips

This is clearly a fishing port and I have never seen so many fish and chip restaurants in one place and none of these were empty!! It’s October and it’s raining but still there were crowds! Lots of interesting little shops as well as your normal “seaside fayre”.

Buzzing, day and night!

Fun and family friendly, this is the best traditional seaside resort for all. History and reality meet in this working port. It is well worth taking the opportunity to take to the sea.

Plenty to do for all ages and budgets
Oct 2021 • Couples
Whitby is an interesting and historic seaside town - plenty of choice of “things to do” as you can spend time wandering around the shops, plenty of pubs, bars, coffee shops and restaurants to choose from - so many fish and chip shops to choose from!
You can access the beach and there are amusement arcades aplenty
Boat trips are available - whether it’s a quick “20 minutes round the bay” or a fishing trip, there is plenty to keep people of any age, and any budget, entertained for the day

Walk around the Harbour
Sep 2021
We walked around the harbour after visiting Whitby Abbey, it was very busy but a lot of places were closed which was disappointing being a normal weekday, there were lots of takeaway fish and chips, ice cream and drinks venues and all had queues, the problem seemed to be a lack of somewhere to sit and eat your chips etc.

So much to see.
Oct 2021
This is a fantastic place to sit and watch what's going on. Always something happening on the river with fishing boats continuously sailing out to sea and the two pleasure boats also sailing every half hour or so. Spot the odd seal too.

Quirky n quaint seaside harbour
Sep 2021 • Couples
In many ways Whitby harbours is much the same as other UK commercial fishing harbours , but dig a little deeper and I think you'll agree with me that Whitby has something more than most to offer. Lovely little ally ways to explore and an abundance of shops and pubs, not to mention the best chippies anywhere.

Loved the harbour, at day and night
Sep 2021
You cant visit Whitby, without spending time around its harbour.. Full of boats going in and out, and if youre lucky the swing bridge will open. Penty of fish and chip shops all around the harbour area, as well as a few arcades, pubs, cafes, gift shops.. The only disappointment was the difficulty in getting a meal in any one of the pubs, they did not take bookings.

Spoiled

Plagued by seagulls and people with dogs I have to say not overly pleasant even on a sunny day as it was . Remarkably tidy all things considered.

Bridge not working
Sep 2021 • Couples
We used park and ride which was great good service to the central bus station.
I used google maps to try and find our destination Humble Pie shop.
We needed to cross the harbour via the bridge.
When we arrived the bridge was open and there it stayed for approximately two and a half hours.
The guy in the middle despite hecklers wanting an update took no notice of their questions.
Apparently this is the fourth time in the last week this has happened causing delays and frustration to staff trying to get to work and to tourists stranded on either side?

Whitby council pull your finger out you are a disgrace

At worst the 1000 or more people should receive an update as to the timescale of the delay
The council should get remedial action in a more timely fashion.
The local business people should club together and sue the pants off them for business disruption

Always something to see...

A pleasure to stroll along the harbour, watch the boats, the birds and people enjoying themselves. Lots of shops and arcades, food and drink outlets. Something for everybody.
