Whitby is a lovely old fishing town with winding cobbled streets and pretty buildings that make you feel as if you’ve gone back in time. There’s something mysterious and intriguing about Whitby, which is highlighted by the presence of beautiful fossils that anyone can find along the shoreline, the seaside fortune tellers and the ghost walks that tell of the town’s spooky past.
Whitby has several different beaches, so if you like building sandcastles, walking along the piers, fossil hunting, looking in rock pools or swimming in the sea, then Whitby’s for you. Whitby also provides the ideal base from which to explore the North Yorkshire Moors and the rest of the Yorkshire Coast.
Coach holidays to Whitby include accommodation in the Royal Hotel. The novelist Bram Stoker stayed in this hotel in 1887 whilst he was writing 'Dracula' and it's believed that he was inspired by the views over the beaches and harbour to the imposingly gothic Whitby Abbey.
The hotel is just a few minutes walk from the town centre and has live entertainment almost every night. As well as coach travel and accommodation, Whitby coach holidays include meals in the hotel and expertly guided excursions.
