Abit of advice for our whitby break.

Hey, I'm just wondering a few things.

1. Any great things to do? Especially which boat trips are best.

2. And any cheap yet tasty fish'n'chips lying around this town?

Thanks.

1. Captain Cook Museum, a general wander in the olde streets, visit the Abbey remains (walk up!). Take a boat trip on the old lifeboat - http://www.oldlifeboatwhitby.co.uk

There are loads of great things to do:

Walk up the steps

Visit St. Mary's church

Visit the Abbey

Wander the cobbled old town area, visiting the shop windows to see Jet displays and stopping for a real lad at the Black Horse

Walk the sea walls

See the whale-bone arch

Go to Sutcliffe's Gallery

Do a Dracula walk

For fish and chips the Magpie remains the best but is not cheap, also popular are Trenchers and Mr Chips

There are plenty of places for good fish and chips – The Quayside is one of the best and price wise it depends whether you eat in or take out. I saw plenty of restaurants where you can eat for around £7 so just look around for somewhere that takes your fancy. Robertsons on Bridge St looked OK – in fact if any one is busy then that’s the palce to be ! I can't add to any of the other comments above as they seem to cover everything. If you want to take a trip up the coast then I can recommend Staithes and Runswick Bay – both are a downhill walk but well worth the trip. If you go south then its Robin Hood’s Bay and then on to Ravenscar where there is a really nice walk (around 2 ½ miles) that takes in great sea views.

I'd definitely recommend it, lots of different flavours and good service. The shop gets very busy especially at lunch time.

Hi

You don't really get bad fish and chips in Whitby but the magpie is lovely and often has special menus on. However, if you are looking for a fish and chip shop with a view the fishermans wife near west cliff khyber pass is second to none.

Also, you must visit Marie Antoinettes cake shop!

Hope this helps.
