A day out in Whitby is always a special treat.

The fishing village turned tourist town was a big part of my childhood. It was my mum’s favourite place to go when she fancied cheering her soul with some sea air. It combined her interests in history, walking and eating with Dad’s love of boats and the sea.

We headed for a day out in Whitby over the Easter break.

There is plentiful parking which is reasonably priced. That is always a great thing for putting a smile on Him Indoors’ face.

The sun was shining and Whitby was looking at its best.

Loving the boat reflections!

We enjoyed checking out the various sights.

You are never short of somewhere to eat in Whitby and it is traditional to go and get fish and chips.

Fancy a chip?

After the feast, we had a long walk enjoying the happy Bank Holiday atmosphere. We nipped in and out of shops where there is something for every budget. There are the traditional seaside shops where the children can pick up toys and games for pocket money prices. Whitby also boasts loads of stylish independent boutiques with something for just about every budget. For myself, I love exploring the charity shops too.

You can’t really go to Whitby and not take advantage of a boat trip.

So affordable and fun too!

Don’t miss out on exploring the back streets either where you can find some very interesting street names.

The mind boggles!

Can you tell we had a happy day out in Whitby?
