Nestled on the Yorkshire Coast, gazing out across the dramatic North Sea, Whitby is famed for three things: a rich maritime history, a gorgeous gothic abbey and some of the best dog-friendly holidays in Britain. Home to sandy beaches, woodland walks and dozens of award-winning dog-friendly restaurants, the charming seaside town of Whitby was made for our four-legged friends, so why on earth would we leave them behind?
When holidaying in Whitby North Yorkshire, there are few things you simply have to do. For starters, a trip to Whitby Abbey is essential. You'll have to head to the heart of Whitby and take a tour of the town centre's many quaint shopping spots, and in the evening, see a sunset from the bridge across the River Esk. But if you let your pooch plan your next day out, chances are they'll take you straight to the beach. Your four-legged friends will be pleased to hear that Whitby is home to dozens of dog-friendly beaches, from the award-winning beauty of Runswick Bay to the fossil-strewn shores of Sandsend Ness. For a secluded sandy paradise, head to Upgang Whitby Beach or for a swim and then a shop, make for Whitby Tate Hill. Nearby Robin Hood's Bay along the North Yorkshire Coast is also worth a visit!
