Activities in Whitby

Open Top Bus Sightseeing Tours

whitby-open-top-bus-whitby-holiday-rentalHop on to our open top bus for a unique sightseeing tour of Whitby. You will get a bird’s eye view of this beautiful North Yorkshire seaside town from our distinctive Double-Decker open top bus as it follows its feature-packed sightseeing tour of historic Whitby.

Our local guides will take you on this trip around Whitby – you can hop on and off the sightseeing tour as many times as you like – whilst you enjoy magnificent seascapes and experience Whitby’s narrow winding streets as the open top bus climbs steeply up to the impressive ruins and new visitor facilities of Whitby Abbey.

Hear Yorkshire tales of bygone days and find out about the Whitby man who had 21 children twice or the man who was the only survivor of the lifeboat disaster of 1861, both immortalised by the camera of Frank Meadow Sutcliffe.

The fully-guided Whitby tour takes approximately one hour but tickets last all day and you can get on and off the sightseeing tour as many times as you wish. The open top bus service runs daily from March to November and you can simply pay as you board.

Golf at Whitby Golf Club

whitby-gloff-club-whitbyapartment-comWHITBY GOLF CLUB  is situated on the western side of the town on the road to the pretty coastal village of Sandsend and has a commanding position on the edge of the cliffs

There are wonderful views along the coast, north-westward over the picturesque bay of Sandsend to Kettleness, south-eastward over the harbour with the Abbey Ruins set in relief and inland over the rolling panorama of the North Yorks Moors.

It is the ideal type of holiday course, not too long or difficult for the moderate player provided a reasonable degree of accuracy is achieved.

“Wild hitters” can be severely punished, as some of the hazards are quite unusual. The most striking is the wild cleft in the Cliffs known as “Upgang Ravine” which has to be driven when playing the 6th and 18th holes

The degree of driving difficulty on many an occasion is decided by the prevailing wind which may come from either the North Sea or the moors.

18 Holes, Par 70, Yardage 5382.
