Nice Lighthouse at the end of Harbour pier. From the 199 steps, the view of the Lighthouse is really amazing! A lot of shops, cafe's and restaurants you will pass by when you walk to the Lighthouse.

So pleased to see the lighthouse open to the public - can't be beaten for £1.50 - some of the best views of Whitby. We had great weather and thoroughly enjoyed the climb and the outlook.
