Trains to Whitby

Trains to Whitby travel along The North Yorkshire Moors Railway, passing through the Esk Valley and the villages of Goathland and Castleton before arriving a short distance from harbour. One of England’s earliest railway stations, it opened in 1836, offering horse-drawn services to Pickering. In 1845 a new station was built to coincide with the switch to steam power, although remnants of the original station remain in the form of offices and a workshop close to the modern build. You’ll be tempted to head straight to the sandy beach for a cone of chips and a 99 Flake ice cream, but stop to explore first. St Mary’s Church and the ruins of Whitby Abbey – at the top of 199 steps on the south side of town – are well worth a visit, as is the Captain Cook Museum. Whitby is also famous for its associations with Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and hosts the twice-yearly Whitby Gothic Weekend.
