Getting around Whitby

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.

where are you staying? Whitby is quite a small place. Some circular buses about every hour so not a brilliant service. Try Whitby taxis 01947 661 406.

As above, Whitby is a small town so walking is generally the way to go. There is a list of taxis companies locally here:


Alternatively, there are buses.
