We loved going on the steam bus with our Cairn Terrier and are sad that it is no longer in Whitby. Great to chug along, see the sites and get information about the sites as you rode along.

Had a trip to Whitby a couple of years ago and me and the girlfriend had to try it. So much fun. Everyone was smiling the whole way round. Definitely recommend it

A brilliant tourist attraction that was forced to stop running due to red tape and pathetic parking issues at the end of October 2014, very sadly missed

Sad to say it is no more! A dispute with the Council and so the owners sold it and we can't recommend it any longer

We arrived in Whitby with some friends from Aberdeen and looked forward to a ride on Elizabeth however Charlotte the Charabang was a great substitute. It was hard for the driver, he had a great sense of humour.

This bus is no longer operating in Whitby. There were some issues with the council over the use of the bus. It was a very good attraction popular with visitors but I don't think we will see it again. It was good value for money and will be missed by all.
