Illuminated Whitby Abbey

News and Events, Things to Do

Whitby Abbey, is once again lighting up for Halloween.  Between Fri 25 Oct – Sat 2 Nov 2019 you can visit Whitby Abbey in the evening and see it bathed in light.  There will also be story tellers telling their spooky tales…..  For more information and costs visit the English Heritage website.

A trip to Whitby wouldn’t be complete without fish and chips.  When visiting we make a point of visiting Mr Chips in the town – not only do they do great fish and chips and an okay glass of wine, they are also very dog friendly.

If you’re up visiting Whitby and North Yorkshire in 2020, why not consider booking one of our self catering holiday cottages, situated not far from Whitby in the Vale of Pickering.  We’d love to welcome you.
