Attraction Information

  • Beaches icon Beaches

Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

There are several shallow laying shipwrecks off the coast for divers to explore, lots of traditional amusements, including a summer theatre, and a museum close to the majestic ruins of Whitby Abbey on the cliff top.

The East Cliff stands above a very rocky coast full of fossils (check the tides before venturing down though, it comes back very fast) and the Magpie Cafe is also at this end, being one of the most highly regarded fish and chip shops in the country, though apparently the queues do reflect this!

Immediate facilities include toilets with disabled access, first aid post, lost child centre, beach huts for hire (01723 383636 and cafes and restaurants nearby.

Other children's activities on the West Cliff include bumper boats, trampolines, pitch and putt, and crazy golf. There is also a tourist shop selling buckets and spades and ice creams. The large west cliff car park is near the Whitby Leisure centre.
