Discover Yorkshire Coast... Later

We’re so sorry not to be able to welcome you at the moment but now is not the right time.

It’s important we keep you and our local communities safe. Many of our businesses remain closed in line with government guidelines. Our public toilets and car parks are also closed and there is no lifeguard cover on our beaches.

Everything will still be here when this is over and we can’t wait to welcome visitors back again, but only when it is safe to do so.

Please help us by playing your part in controlling the virus spread and only come back when we can welcome you safely.


In the meantime please share your treasured memories of visits on the coast with photos from your holidays, please use

Whitby England is famous for many things: it's a traditional seaside resort with Blue Flag beaches, and has some of the best fish and chips around. But there's so much more to visit in Whitby...

With Blue Flag beaches and many attractions, including the world-famous steam train, North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Whitby is the perfect base for a family holiday. But it doesn’t end there. Whitby wallows in history, including fishing, the jet industry (did you know that it’s still the best place in the world to find the gleaming black gemstone so beloved by the Victorians?), Captain Cook (who was born nearby, and whose famous ship the Endeavour was Whitby-built) and whaling. And its literary connections – Bram Stoker’s famous Dracula features the town, with the vampire first coming ashore here from Transylvania in the guise of a black dog – have inspired the world famous Goth Festival, which now takes place twice a year, in the spring and around Halloween.
