Visited here with a friend from (Leeds) uni. It’s a nice town – a small place considering what I’m used to, but it felt quaint and traditional. The chips were nice but nothing to rave about, though it was enjoyable whilst walking along by the beach. We visited the remains of Whitby Abbey, which wasn’t as exciting as I’d built it up to be, and it did cost us £6 each to get in. After spending a day there, we were more than ready to leave though, since there’s not a great deal to do.about 1 year ago

I went to Whitby a few years ago for Whitby Gothic Weekend X. The small town was packed full of goths, and I spent a pleasant weekend wandering around the area (if you go, you simply MUST visit the abbey) and attending the WGWX festival. Good time, although I think it might be a little boring if you were there with nothing in particular to do.over 6 years ago
I have been here many, many times since childhood and never tire of Whitby, it has a magical quality especially in mid-late autumn when the tourists have gone home.
A great place to kick back, chill out and do nothing for a couple of days – a personal bolt-hole! That’s not to say there’s nothing to do it Whitby, it remains a thriving commerical and tourist town, managing that balance in a way that would put other, larger attrations to shame.
Avoid middle of summer when its packed, try April-May or mid-September to early October (wrap up warm after late September).over 7 years ago
