Family & Seaside Attractions in Whitby

For a nostalgic bucket-and-spade holiday, with trips to the tupenny waterfalls on wet days, it’s hard to beat Whitby. Superb Blue Flag beaches, vibrantly coloured beach huts, a magnificent pier, the opportunity to take a wide variety of sea trips, from whale watching and angling to simple pleasure cruises – including aboard a scale replica of Captain Cook’s HMS Endeavour – and the opportunity to travel aboard the world’s most popular heritage steam railway, you certainly won’t be short of things to do when the kids get bored.
