By Car - If you are not familiar with Whitby we suggest you follow the signs for 'West Cliff' Parking or the brown signs for Whitby Pavilion. This will lead you to the West Cliff Crescent Gardens area.
Normanby Terrace/ John Street is then a short distance along Crescent Avenue. Parking on Normanby Terrace and surrounding roads is 'On Street' and is operated by a scratch card system - these can be collected from the B&B reception on arrival.
When arriving if a nearby space is not available we suggest you double park to unload and settle into your room. We can then give you some directions on parking.
By Rail or Bus - A taxi from just outside the station is a good idea if you have heavy bags. The walk is around 5 minutes mainly uphill.
