We go there at least twice a year for fish and chips. The goth weekends are also very busy but great atmosphere. A lovely picturesque town by the sea. Home of the lucky duck and dracula.

We stayed in Ravenscar, so did Ravenscar to Whitby and back one day, and Ravenscar to Scarborough the next. The Ravenscar to Whitby section is very rough, and could do with more cinders in places, with cobbles and stones sticking out of the track. Even...More
