Whitby, Scarborough and York
Whitby, dominated by the cliff-top ruins of the beautiful 13th century Whitby Abbey, this traditional maritime town with its maze of cobbled streets and alleyways meander past picturesque houses down to the busy quayside and Blue Flag sandy beach. Looming 199 steps above the old town, stands St Mary’s Church, a fine example of Anglo Saxon architecture, whose graveyard was the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Attractions can include the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, Victorian Jet Works, the Dracula Experience and Whitby Museum.
Day 1 Departure: 0700-0800 hrs. Travel north, making a comfort stop en-route. Arrive Whitby, hotel check-in. Dinner is included for the next 3 nights.
Day 2 The traffic-free centre of York is an ideal place to visit, all set within the ancient city walls. Delve into the city’s vibrant café culture, enjoy lunch at one of the many varied eateries. If times permits a visit to the Castle Museum is highly recommended. Here you can step back in time, walking through the lifelike replicas of Victorian and Edwardian streets. Alternatively, call into the mighty Minster or walk along the cobbled streets of The Shambles.
Day 3 Visit Scarborough. Britain’s first seaside resort has been welcoming visitors for over 360 years and is still as popular as ever. The safe, sandy, accredited beaches of the north and south bays are broken by a rocky headland on which stands a reminder of the past – Scarborough’s medieval castle.
