A Weekend In Whitby

Last bank holiday weekend, a bunch of us decided to pack the car and go off to Whitby for the day. Whitby is one of my favourite places to go however looking at the weather forecast, I was not going to be getting any bronzed glow, just frostbite.

When we eventually arrived, everybody headed straight to the fish & chip shop, before deciding it was a brilliant idea to eat our food whilst walking up to Whitby Abbey. Now we supposedly went the 'easy way' up, which turned out to be ten times worse and by halfway I was sat on a bench dying (It could be the fact I'm unfit, but lets just blame Whitby for now.) 
After we'd had a wander around, we headed back down the 199 steps, which was so much easier, to the beach. And after a while of trying to get the perfect picture of a wave (yes I know, how artsy am I), we went to have a look in the shops. I love how cute the shops are in Whitby, especially in the old town and I always manage to find something quirky that I want!
After a few hours of wandering around and eating lots of ice cream, a trip to the arcade was a necessary stop before the journey home. Honestly I would be such a gambler if I lived near the coast, those bloody 2p machines, haha! I did win a twitter keyring though, how fancy.

After a brilliant day out, it was time to head home and back to the warmth of the car!
 I thought I'd share a few pictures, so I hope you've enjoyed!

Have you ever been to Whitby? and whats your Favourite places to visit?
Let me know!

  5. Hey, thanks for joining us at #beechat - I think we broke Twitter as it won't let us reply to anyone anymore, so we thought we'd stop by your blog and check it out!

    Sounded like such a lovely trip, we've never been before but it looks like a great day trip! We'll add this to our bucket list!
