We'll be coming into Whitby from London via train. What are transport options there? Are cabs easy to find? Is there a bus system?
I visited about 20 years ago as student. We stayed at a hostel by the abbey and I honestly don't remember doing anything but walking. That was a long time ago though and I don't remember how far apart everything is. Walking to accommodations from the train station, with luggage, may no longer be an option I want to take.
