    • Fish n chips

      by crazymum Online Now Aug 16, 2016 at 1:10 AM

      Really looking forward to Whitby folk - any suggestions for good fish n chips reasonably priced - I know about the Three Magpies and I wasn't impressed with the Jolly Sailor - there is a session in the George & Dragon has anybody eaten there recently?? - Normally we go to the Hare & Hounds at West Hawksker on a Fri

      Also if any locals know of any good cheap day parking - not the leisure centre as it's OK going down but an almighty treck up hill

      Need a car?

      by msklausler Online Now Apr 20, 2010 at 6:23 AM

      We're going to Whitby for a few days (from the US) and I'm wondering if we will need a car to get around, or can we just take the train from an airport and walk the town for those few days?

      Also, best airport to fly into for staying in Whitby?

      Hi there, I want to do a day trip to Whitby from York next Sunday, I don't have my own vehicle, what is the easiest/quickest way to get there? Train to Scarborough then bus to Whitby, or bus all the way? They don't seem to be that frequent on Sundays and have to change in Marlton?
      Any help much appreciated:-)

      Which side of river best for B&B?

      by Raunchy_Poet Online Now Jul 8, 2007 at 2:53 AM

      Hi there - Whitby cognoscenti!

      It's many, many years since I went to Whitby, and all I remember is the abbey up on the hill on one side of the river. I want to book 1-2 nights B&B, and would like to know which side of the river is best. Any other info on well-positioned B&Bs would be welcome.

      Is there any coach/train connection from Whitby to Durham?

      by christine.j Online Now Mar 15, 2005 at 10:17 PM

      I was planning to take the coach from York to Whitby, go back to York, and the next day take a train up to Durham. But I would be easier to make this trip a triangle: take the coach to Whitby, go to Durham and then take the train back to York. However, I couldn't find any train for the Whitby-Durham leg. National Express also has no direct coach.
      Does anyone know if there is some other public transportation between the two towns?
      Thank you for any information.
