Things to do around Ruswarp, Whitby and the local area


So much to see and do in the area!

Whitby is a five minute car drive away, or you can walk across country within 25 minutes. Whitby is the home of Captain Cook, with an excellent museum to find out more about his adventures. The ancient Abbey stairs tumble down into Church Street where the many unique shops will fascinate you and leave you wanting more.

Just down the coast lies Robin Hood's Bay, where images of smugglers abound within its many alleyways, nooks and crannies. It's a steep incline down to the beach so you'll need to be fit!

The Moors have many footpaths criss-crossing the heather, giving spectacular views of the North Yorkshire Moors railway as it makes its way through the beautiful village of Goathland down to Pickering.
