Discover the rugged beauty of rural north England on this 8-hour North York Moors and Whitby day trip. Departing from York you will head towards the medieval town of Helmsley, where you will get the chance to explore quaint shops and see the medieval castle.
You will depart from Helmsley and head off through Hutton-le-Hole and up over the North York Moors for some photo stops, passing the 16th century Lion Inn on Blakey Ridge (the highest point on the moors) and Ralph's Cross, then through the quaint and picturesque Yorkshire villages that lead down into Whitby. As you arrive in Whitby, you will hear stories about the seaside town's history and your guide will point out the main places of interest that you may want to visit. The tour stops in Whitby for two hours over lunchtime with options to view Whitby Abbey (inspiration for the Dracula books), visit the Captain Cook Museum, shop for some Whitby Jet or Gothic fashion, sample the famous Fish 'n' Chips at the Magpie Cafe or just enjoy the beach and waterfront - the choice is yours.
Delve into the North York Moors National Park for panoramic views over the rolling countryside. Soak up Whitby’s seaside atmosphere at your leisure, perhaps visiting Whitby Abbey, the port or the Captain Cook Museum. You will return to York via the dramatic Hole of Horcum. There is an optional North Yorkshire Moors Railway Steam Train trip from Whitby to Goathland paid locally.
