Need somewhere to stay?
Taking the kids hunting for fossils amongst the rock pools all whilst telling them that Jurassic Park could really happen!
Whitby's skyline is dominated by the ruins of St. Hilda's Abbey, high on Whitby's East Cliff. Spreading below Whitby, a maze of alleyways and narrow streets run down to the busy quayside.
I love getting up early and catching a few waves before the beach gets busy.
Runswick Bay is the perfect beach to visit with small ones. Beautiful sand, shallow water and small enough to keep them in sight while they're rock pooling or digging and you're reading the paper!
I love those little tiny pedestrian lanes in Runswick Bay. Perfect for having a nosey into people's seaside lives.
The walks at Danes Dyke reservoir are amazing. There is a nature walk and a woodland walk and you get to see some amazing animals and mini-beasts.
The jousting at Sewerby Hall in the summer is great. They all dress up and joust on horses – and the tea rooms are a great place to visit afterwards!
Runswick Bay is the best place for finding fossils! We loved it.
I love exploring the caves on the beaches - local legend has it that a ‘Hob' or Goblin lives in a cave in the southern part of the bay that can cure whooping cough.
The harbour… many memories of eating shrimps sat down by the sea. That was where I developed my intense love of seafood.
Memories of many childhood holidays - a red bucket in the shape of a castle, a yellow spade, egg sandwiches, flat cola from plastic cups, lots of sweet John Bull rock and the reason for my addiction to fish and chips!
Robin Hood's Bay:
Robin Hoods Bay is perfect for watching stars - at night you can see millions across the sky.
The Victorian weekend in December is great. The candle light procession up the bank is lovely and the annual Baytown Players pantomime, usually around the same time, is always comedy gold.
The Wayfarer Restaurant is really good for food, as is The Bramblewick, and if you're looking for a great place for a drink The Laurel is a tiny, lovely cosy Yorkshire pub.
The museum is a great way to spend an afternoon - keep an eye out for the life-size model of a local fish wife - she has surprises up her sleeve.
If you catch the boat it sails right up to the cliff base and you can see an amazing mass of sea birds wheeling above you.
The village is steeped in local customs, from its traditional knitting patterns for fishermen's jumpers, to its Danish sword dancing - not to be missed.
The really deep sea caves around the corner from North Landing on the head are perfect for kayaking (on a calm day!)
I love the freshly caught crabs that you can get from the van parked in North Landing car park.
Filey has the best fish ‘n' chips for miles and, incidentally, sand with perfect consistency for sandcastles!
The festivals are so much fun - in July there's the Scarecrow festival and they still hold a l fishing festival in the first week of September with 70 trophies.
Walking to Hunmanby Gap is great. If you climb the footpath up the cliffs at the end of the beach you come to St Leonards Church, a tiny Saxon chapel with no aisle. A real little gem.
Crescent Gardens is great -a great play area for kids, crazy golf, pedalos, stunning views across the bay and a brass band in the summer.
I love the mere - you can take rowing boats out in the spring and summer and all around the mere is a nature reserve - even though it's on a small scale there are lots of geese, ducks and swans to feed.
There are loads of good fish and chip places -Sullivans is a bit famous in East Yorkshire! Restaurant wise, The Med is a nice Italian, decent prices, good food and wine. Dead friendly.
Grab a doughnut from the promenade cafe they are pretty tasty.
I love the town and seaside. It's little, quite old-fashioned and quiet. While it's great in the summer I prefer it in the winter. Then the town has a slightly lost, nostalgic feel, and massive seas.
Walking along Marine Drive in winter when the waves crash over the wall ea and days at Peasholme park watching the model battleships wars.
It's great for mountain biking, the challenge of Mount Misery at Wykeham or the technical red route at Dalby Forest, or just a scenic route of the old railway line from Scarborough to Whitby is great.
The vibrant cultural scene - no pretension, tonnes of quality
Fish and chips from the Fish Pan, a lemon top from Pacittos then playing the tuppeny pushers at the amusements. I do that every time I come back to my hometown for a visit!
The annual nightgown parade as part of the Lifeboat Weekend in August is brilliant - many of the local women still wear Staithes bonnets for it and some can still be bought today in the gift shop.
The local fishermen will sometimes organise fishing parties for sea anglers, if interested it is best to enquire at the harbour for details.
Memories of my mum catching more crabs than my brother on the pier still make me smile. Family days in Staithes were great.
Nice fish and chips in the cod and lobster pub, a gallery to look around and lots of nice fisherman's cottages to rent and stay in for a weekend getaway.
Catching crabs off the bridge is great fun for all the family. If you visit the Magpie Café, try the seafood hotpot - it's a great winter warmer and delicious alternative to fish & chips.
The beauty, the harbour, the lovely unique shops... the little glass shop, Whitby jet... shall I go on?
Love Winter in Whitby - quieter, rougher seas, and nice relaxing by the fire in the pubs & cafe's.
Whitby is a great day out for a pub crawl, we do it every year and we are always made to feel welcome.
The jousting at Sewerby Hall in the summer is great. They all dress up and joust on horses - and the tea rooms are a great place to visit afterwards!
The harbour.....many memories of eating shrimps sat down by the sea. That was where I developed my intense love of seafood.
Memories of many childhood holidays - a red bucket in the shape of a castle a yellow spade, egg sandwiches, flat cola from plastic cups, lots of sweet John Bull rock and the reason for my addiction to fish and chips!
I love the fact that it is everything the seaside should be about - amusement arcades, fish and chips and rock in every flavour and appearance imaginable - my favorite is always the bacon and egg on a paper plate.
The Sunday market is quite popular and you can often pick up some great bargains.
The town itself is quite small, but friendly, with loads of small, independent stores for an interesting afternoon browsing for gifts and souveniers.
The people are great, really friendly and the holidaymakers are known affectionately by the locals as diggers and the amusement arcades as ‘muggies’.
