Whitby Hotels

Whitby is a welcoming seaside town, set in the deep greens of North Yorkshire’s folksy Borough of Scarborough. The red-terraced houses and white stone steps lead down to a soft stretch of copper beachfront, which overlooks the bracing blue waters of the North Sea. Whitby is overlooked by the triumphant golden ruins of Whitby Abbey, the jewel of the town’s immersive history. The quaint cobbled streets are lined with fresh seafood restaurants and cosy, fire-lit taverns.

Things to see

Whitby is speckled with hidden architectural gems - from the resplendent smooth-stoned town hall to the old-world, half-timbered fisherman’s houses - but the most enchanting 2 buildings are undoubtedly the Church of Saint Mary and the Whitby Abbey. After exploring this Norman church and ambling through its grassy grounds, hike up the hill to the Abbey ruins, a skeletal framework of stately golden stone, where the sun pours through its windows and vines creep up its walls. Afterward, stroll along the mariner and gaze at the white-washed fishing boats before relaxing on the uncrowded soft sands of Whitby beach. For a family-themed afternoon, visit Pannett Park, an expanse of green, flower-flecked grounds packed with curiosities and play areas for the children. In the evening, indulge in simmering fresh-cooked seafood at one of the many fine dining restaurants that sit along riverside Pier Road.

Hotels in Whitby

Whitby hotels and accommodation caters to all needs and budgets, making for a convenient and pleasant stay. In the quaint, historic town centre, there are a cluster of 4 and 5-star lodges and guesthouses, which provide indulgent in-room service, downy king-sized beds, and stately lounge bars - perfect for that romantic getaway. The narrow, quiet streets that lead away from the centre are sprinkled with inexpensive and family-friendly B&Bs, which boast traditional hospitality and sizzling, home-cooked breakfasts - all within a short walk of Whitby’s sights and attractions.

Where to stay

Whitby town centre, with its bell-topped town hall and cobbled square, makes for an unforgettable stay. The town square hosts endearing family-run cafés, with outdoor seating, so you can enjoy a refreshing cup of tea and mouthwatering scones while immersing yourself in the centre's historic vibe and local charm. For unbeatable views of the vast North Sea and Whitby Abbey, stay in the east of town, across the River Esk, which also offers a quieter, less crowded visit. To immerse yourself in the luscious greens of surrounding Scarborough, stay in the luxurious accommodation on offer in nearby Burnett’s Wood.

How to get to Whitby

Nestled in the north of Moors National Park, Whitby is a hidden refuge from the humdrum of its surrounding cities, yet nevertheless, it is easy to get to. If travelling south by car, take the A171, a main road which cuts through the dense, luxuriant forests. If travelling north by car, adjoin the A169, and stop along the way at the numerous woods and shimmering lakes that aline the road to Whitby. Whitby train station is centrally located, and offers round-the-clock service north to Newcastle and south to York.
