With its skyline dominated by the ruins of St Hilda’s Abbey and labyrinth of narrow alleyways, Whitby possesses old world charm. Climb the one hundred and ninety steps from the old town and you’ll arrive at the churchyard of St Mary. Other delights include the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, located in the seventeenth century harbourside house where he served his apprenticeship.
Filey & Malton
Our day begins in Filey, a former fishing village rich in heritage and home to a variety of seabirds as well as Edwardian architecture, quirky shops and an intriguing museum. After time to take in its charms, we move on to the market town of Malton – known as Yorkshire’s Food Capital thanks to its big reputation for all things food. Browse the independent shops or visit the archaeological museum. Perhaps hop on the local bus to the award-winning Eden Camp Modern History museum which is set on the site of a POW camp and where you can experience the sights and sounds of war time Britain.
