While you and your pet are in Whitby, you'll stumble upon ancient coastlines and historic jewels without even trying. Just so that you don't miss a trick, here are some of the sites that will have you and your hound backflipping with excitement.
There are plenty of beaches surrounding Whitby where you can walk with your dog and enjoy the sea air and sights together. Paddle in the cool sea at Whitby Beach and explore the rockpools, which are filled with sea creatures come low tide. Anemones open and crabs scuttle in these seaweed-strung mirrors.
This English Heritage Site can be enjoyed together with your dog, and it's just a few steps from your accommodation in town. Learn about the lengthy history of the Abbey, about the life of the monks who lived here, and take a picture with this celebrated and beguiling building. The Gothic grandeur of this building was enough to stoke Bram Stoker's imagination, giving us the world-famous novel, Dracula.
Dracula supposedly arrived from Transylvania in the guise of a dog. After a long hike, you and your pet can also sink your teeth into some refreshments. Head to one of Whitby's charming and heritage-filled pubs to relax. Historic pubs like the Black Horse Inn also welcome dogs, while the popular Endeavour is conveniently close to the beach. Later on, retire to Humble Pie and Mash, where you and your canine companion can chow down on local, seasonal treats.
