Our first trip of the week is to Whitby – one of our most perfect seaside resorts -Dominated by the clifftop ruined Abbey, the narrow alleys and quaint streets climb down to the busy quayside, with its harbour side houses and small shops filled with crafts, curios, and antiques. It’s also the place where Bram Stoker created his best-known fictional character, Dracula.
Offering Blue Flag beaches and some of the best fish and chips around you won’t be disappointed with your visit to one of the most picturesque ports in England!
Today’s trip takes us to York; few cities in the world can rival York for history and character. A picturesque riverside city encircled by a ribbon of ancient walls, York has a fascinating provenance that stretches back 2,000 years. Nonetheless, the city has aged well; from the medieval stained glass of its great Gothic cathedral to the Roman roads beneath your feet, the past is delightfully inescapable.
You’ll find shadowy medieval ‘snickleways’ and ginnels run between pubs and quaint tearooms. Every turn seems to reveal another historic site or lovely view, but among the finery of ancient sandstone churches and the cobbled alleyways you’ll find a buzzing city centre where chic boutiques and big brand retailers jostle for space with cafes, galleries and delis.
