Whitby

...people to see. Well, not really. More like 'we went to the Umbrella Museum in Ashby de la Zouch and it was GREAT.' If there is such a thing, that is.

We've got half term next week and we're off to Whitby. Any recommendations of places to go / things to do? We're staying near the harbour and don't really want to drive very far, but DH and buses will have their bikes.

There's a lovely park in Whitby. Can't remember exactly where but walkable from the town centre. I seem to remember it is high up! Catch the steam train to Goathland?

We are also at whitby for the half term, we are staying up at Whitehall Landings. The Whitby Goth Weekend is on over halloween this year. So you could visit the markets up at the Spa and swimming baths on the Friday & Saturday. Fish & Chips at the Quayside restaurant. Fossil hunting on the beach. The Abbey & the 99 steps. Boat rides out to sea. Walk to end of the pier. If you fancy a treat you can get deep fried prawns and a cocktail at the Moon & Sixpence on the harbour. Day trip to Scarbourgh, Robin Hoods Bay, Filey etc. Def the steam train they have halloween specials

(strangle small children after I have had enough of their arguing and bury them on the beach lol)

Thanks all. We had a lovely week. Walked to Saltwick Nab along the cliff and found fossils. Pannett Park playground three times, including the museum one day, which was a surprise hit. It's a proper old-fashioned museum full of all sorts of random things, fossils, ships in bottles, a mummified hand, Victorian toys. Got the steam train to Goathland and walked back to Grosmont to get the train back - slightly stressful as the first train was 40 mins late so we didn't have as long for the walk as we'd hoped, but we did it comfortably in 3 hours with a picnic stop, so we still had time for a quick look at the engine sheds in Grosmont. No boat trip as it was too rough our last day. A day at the Abbey and wandering around the cliff top, and just lots of time on the two beaches and wandering around the town with stops for tea and cake. P's comment on it all was 'I liked the abbey and being able to walk in the road'.
