I'll be traveling at the end of September with my parents and my aunt. They are all in their late 60's - mid 70's and pretty mobile for their age, but I'm worried that the 199 steps from the town to the Abbey may be too much for them.
We'd like to see the Abbey, then spend the rest of the day exploring Whitby. We'll have a rental car. I was thinking we'd see the Abbey in the morning and park at the car park there. Then drive into Whitby instead of taking the stairs (down probably wouldn't be a problem - but coming up might be!) Does this sounds feasible? Are there car parks centrally located in Whitby where we could park for the day?
Any suggestions greatly appreciated. : )
