A great walk on Saturday night with Dr Crank. A largish group of around 30, very mixed ages. A fantastic way to see the lesser visited West Cliff and hear lots of spooky stories from Whitby' past. Thoroughly enjoyable

How many miles do you walk on this ghost walk. I have a friend who doesn't walk more than about a mile. Are there any steps and hills to this walk.

I'm not entirely sure how far but your out for a good hour or so. There are quite a few steps and hilly areas too. I hope this helps ☺
