Only 3 miles towards the coast from Sleights lies Whitby, a picturesque Yorkshire fishing town. Providing many wonderful attractions inluding the famous Abbey and Whalebone Arch, the East and West Piers, St. Mary's Church and the 199 Steps as well as a myriad of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants as well as it's extensive sandy beach, Whitby is one of the top seaside destinations in the country.
Whatever the weather, you'll always find something to do in Whitby. With several boats offering short cruises down the coast or fishing trips of various lengths the harbour is always a hive of activity. Sample some fish & chips from one of the many restaurants or takeaways and have a look around the cobbled streets of the old town and the market square.
Visit the newly re-developed town park (Pannett Park) featuring Whitby's Town Museum and Art Gallery and or just sit in a cafe and watch the world go by. Whitby has something for everyone!
