There’s more to Whitby than meets the eye – with its connections to Captain Cook and Dracula, its quirky narrow streets and bustling harbour overlooked by the striking Gothic ruins of Whitby Abbey, Whitby is a fascinating town, unlike any other. Enjoy the quirky fishing villages of Staithes and Robin Hood’s Bay, the unspoilt sandy beaches of Sandsend and Runswick Bay, the staggering views from the clifftops at Ravenscar, and the popular seaside resorts of Saltburn and Redcar. Enjoy the 800km of bridleways that weave through the peaceful and colourful countryside of the North York Moors National Park, which surrounds Whitby town.
Packed with popular tourist destinations, independent shops and markets, and beautiful historic and natural attractions, Pickering is a bustling and vibrant market town set at the edge of the majestic North York Moors.
Follow the pushchair and wheelchair friendly nature trail in the village and find storyboards, tree carvings depicting birds and wildlife around the pond, as well as boxes for hedgehogs, birds and bats plus a bug hotel.
Nearby Dalby Forest, just to the north of Thornton le Dale, provides fantastic opportunities for walking, cycling, nature-watching and star-gazing. The Visitor Centre can fill you in on what to see and do, but don’t miss the walk to the Bridestones, impressive outcrops of sandstone that stand along the edge of a deep valley.
Look out for ‘Walks around Thornton le Dale’, which is available from the Village Information Point. It features some great walks, including the lovely short wander up the valley to the tiny hamlet of Ellerburn and its ancient Saxon church.
