Watch the boats go in and out of the harbour, share some chips with the seagulls, take some scenic photos through the whale bones.

Although crowded the day we were there, it is always fun and interesting to stroll the Harbour. Yes, there are the sweet shops and other tourist traps, and too many fish and chippies to choose from, but it is a working harbour and you can smell the salt air. Just as one would expect. Will return again, for sure.

We visited Whitby on Easter saturday after arriving on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. We were disappointed in the town since it seemed full of the normal run of the mill tacky seaside shops and amusements and lacking in shops. Also very full with mods and rockers and their bikes. Glad to leave .
