Whitby is located at the exit of the River Esk to the North Sea. Even though it is a little town, there is quite a lot to see and do over there. On both sides of the river exit to the sea there are high cliffs. The north cliff has a monument of Captain James Cook, an arch-shaped monument made up of a whale bones and of course stunning views around. Stairs take you down to a great beach, a promenade and a lovely street full of shops with great quality fish and chips. After crossing a charming old bridge you can go to the southern side. The labyrinth of small streets with old houses takes you through jewellery shops selling jewellery with the black local stone called jet. Finally, you arrive at 199 stairs which lead to the southern cliff. At the top, next to St Mary Church you can admire view of the harbour and then you can continue to Whitby Abbey, which is in my opinion the highlight of the trip. If you are lucky you may witness a show about Dracula’s visit to Whitby. Dracula supposedly travelled here at certain point of his career. Don’t forget to take a boat trip, of course. Funny enough the place which I show you here is further up along the river, so to see the attractions which I mentioned you need to check my other photos from Whitby.
