LOCATION and Town Attractions

Cliff Street is a narrow little one-way road leading from Flowergate up towards The "Whalebones" and Captain Cook's statue.

It's very convenient for everything.

See the numbers on the map
1 Harbourside - 2 mins walk down the passageways. Here you'll find the famous "Magpie" fish and chip restaurant.
2 Sand beach and pier
3 Baxtergate which has banks and usual high street shops. Large Co-op Supermarket open longer hours is down by the railway station.
4 The Abbey via the 199 steps.
5 Specialist shops - including retro/antiques and Goth shops!
6 Captain Cook Museum
7 Pannet Park Museum/art gallery and a large childrens playground
8 The cliff top includes the Spa Theatre, crazy golf, boating lake and paddling pool.

THE SUN May 11th 2006

9 Slatebed beach - beneath the abbey cliff - superb for finding fossils at low tide!
P Good family pubs with superb harbour views are The Duke of York and The Board. (There are also excellent Indian and Chinese restaurant/take aways by the station.)
F Our favourite fish and chip shop is also the closest on Silver St!
The railway and bus stations are about 10 minutes walk. (The bus takes about 2 hours direct from York. Trains take hours to get anywhere, but quite often you'll be pulled by a steam engine!)

As well as the town attractions, there are lots of other beaches and harbours within a short drive or bus ride. These include Robin Hood's Bay, Runswick Bay, Sandsend, and Staithes. The edge of the North York Moors National Park is visible from the top floor, regular steam trains run from the station and Flamingoland Theme Park is 26 miles away.

Like most houses in Whitby there's no parking in the street, but unlike some houses in Whitby, at least there is a street.

PARKING/SCRATCHCARDS: Pull up to the side of the street and dump all your stuff in the house, then drive up to the DISC ZONE in the West Cliff Area. In winter months there is no restriction to parking here. In summer months you'll need a parking scratchcard, so one or two 4-day cards will be left out for you in the kitchen.
