Whitby is an historic fishing town dominated by the cliff top ruins of its 12th century Abbey and famous for its connections with Captain Cook and Dracula. There are many good restaurants and numerous very good fish and chips shops including the celebrated Magpie Cafe. There is a good golf course on the cliffs between Sandsend and Whitby. Further to the south is Robin Hoods Bay and the lovely Victorian seaside town of Scarborough (home to the Stephen Joseph Theatre where Alan Ayckbourn premieres all his plays).
