partially paved


A walk around Whitby, taking in the two piers, the beach (tide permitting) and the Captain Cook Monument. The walk affords excellent coastal and town views. The walk is mostly flat, but there are several steep climbs and descents, with steps. There is also a beach section (tide permitting). Tide tables MUST be consulted to ensure the tide will be going out whilst you are on the beach. Care must also be taken on the second of the two piers as there are no barriers at the edges of the pier, and it is unwise to venture out onto this should the tide be coming in (especially in bad weather).
