The view from the Whitby Lighthouse is wonderful! :-) Enjoyed every moment whilst I was there. The view is just amazing, can see for quite a bit when your at the top of the lighthouse. Amazing! :)

The Lighthouses are the gateway to Whitby Harbour and are a prominent feature served by two piers, which also offer nice walks and some very scenic views. Abbey,Beach, Town, Etc.

“a place with a view of not only the sea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

Narrow but glad we made it.

One of those things in Whitby which makes you need more time to stay in town but how to resist?

went there for the second time, this time stayed overnight thus able to see the high tide... strong wind and waves provide a cooling experience...

“A bit of a windy one !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

Wow think we got blown from pillar to post on this visit to the lighthouse. But most excellent . Love the photo opportunity of the Abbey and so much more. Next time one thinks that we should choose a less windy day !
