Holidays in Whitby,
North Yorkshire

The picturesque port of Whitby, in North Yorkshire, has been a popular UK holiday destination for centuries. With its fascinating history, sandy beaches and beautiful sea views, as well as a more recent influx of stylish restaurants and bars, Whitby is the perfect location for a romantic getaway or short family break.

Experience the beauty of the North Yorkshire coast

Situated in a perfectly central location on the North Yorkshire coast, Whitby itself lies to the north of the charming villages of Robin Hood’s Bay and Scarborough, and south of Staithes, Runswick Bay and Boulby Cliffs. Just two miles away to the west – very close to Raithwaite Sandsend – is the extraordinary natural landscape of the North York Moors National Park, which offers unforgettable hiking routes and stunning views.
With a variety of holiday rentals, hotels and holiday apartments located around the town, visitors can enjoy exploring the attractions of the West Cliff area before strolling down to historic Whitby town centre.
