Things to do in Whitby – August

The busiest and desirable month to visit Whitby is August, and this is with good reason, the weather, the seaside town and all of the places and things to do around North Yorkshire making for a brilliant summer holiday for all the family. Whitby is perfectly located for you to uncover every last secret North Yorkshire has to hide, having a huge array of different beaches, countryside, towns and nearby cities, reflected in Whitby, known for the famous Whitby Abbey, its coastal stretch, its gothic aesthetic and its relaxing atmosphere. Whitby Holiday Rentals will take care of you during your time here in Whitby, providing you with a well-equipped, clean and comfortable apartment in the town centre, a place which is guaranteed to feel like your home away from home, a place you will be dying to return to!

In the heart of Whitby, separating the town into half is the harbour, a place offering many different boat rides out to sea, so you can take in Whitby from afar, a walk down to Whitby Beach or even a walk up to Whitby Abbey, the harbour hosting the Whitby Regatta later in the month. With the weather being the best it is going to be all year, you will of course be out and about all day, many different beaches along the coast down to Filey up to Staithes, along as the National Parks, North Yorkshire Moors and Yorkshire Dales, as well as the nearby cities of York and Newcastle upon Tyne. The Whitby Traction Engine Weekend happens at the start of August, showing off a fine range of different Steam Engines, Classic Cars, Classic Motorcycles and Vintage Tractors, with a firework show on the Saturday, with Whitby Folk Week at the end of the month.

Whitby Holiday Rentals have a selection of different apartments for you to put your feet up in this August, as we offer well-equipped apartments, which have a welcoming and homely environment for you to relax in after a long day out in North Yorkshire.
