Small towns have their own magic and Whitby is no exception to this rule. However, if you look around carefully, you will see the town doesn’t let you get bored so easily. So, no more talking. Here goes our list of top 5 things to do in Whitby.
Attend the events
Temporary as they are, the events taking place all around the year in Whitby are definitely worth attending. Harbour Day, Heritage Day, Art in the Park, Music in the Park, Harvest Festival and many other fairs and festivals are open for the locals and tourists. Mark them all in your calendar, they are really cool!
Relax in one of the conservation areas
Whitby has two large conservation areas. You can admire various birds and animals and, with some restrictions, you can even feed some of them. The flora is quite impressive, too, and if you are there at the right time, you can enjoy some breathtaking sunsets.
Become a secret agent
Way back when, Whitby’s Interpid Park was the headquarters of Camp X. They used to train agents to infiltrate the Nazi occupied territory. There are still some remains of the camp in there park, so go there and look for these relics.
Taste some good beer
The population of Whitby seems to be fans of craft beer, judging by the number of pubs and breweries. Feel like having a cold beer after a long day of work or after visiting the downtown of Whitby on a lazy Sunday? You will have plenty of awesome places to choose from.
Visit the Lynde House
The Lynde House Museum and Visitor Centre offers a sneak peak to the past. Let it take you back to explore Whitby’s history. You will get a glance at the lifestyle of our ancestors and you can even attend the exhibitions and demonstrations. They organise these on a constant basis.
