Things to do in Whitby – January

A break to Whitby can be an excellent way of starting the New Year, being a very quiet time of month in Whitby, perfect for a peaceful retreat or the ideal opportunity to wrap up and explore the relaxing North Yorkshire setting. Whitby has plenty to do during January, being many different places, many different bars and restaurants to welcome the New Year, being just as many nature walks to go on to admire the picturesque landscape, as well as many different activities for a rainy day. Whitby Holiday Rentals can make your stay here in North Yorkshire a lot more settled, as we provide you with a self-catering apartment, which will make you feel like you are at your home away from home.

Most people wouldn’t choose to go to Whitby during the winter, especially January. Which is much more of an advantage than a disadvantage. By being the off-peak period of the year Whitby becomes a lot more of the peaceful, gothic town it has the reputation as rather than a resort town it becomes in the summer.

Being such a quiet time of year, Whitby has many local shops, galleries and more to have a look around, made much easier in Winter, and is perfect to get to know the rest of North Yorkshire, nearby towns, such as Filey, Scarborough and Staithes. Throughout the Winter, Whitby Pavilion has many different pantomimes and events on, being no different in January, often having shows such as Aladdin and Cinderella, for you to enjoy a nice day at the theatre with the children.

In the colder months you may decide to go on the North Yorkshire Steam Railway, to go for a vintage train ride to admire the countryside or to go explore the North Yorkshire Moors, to see the history in the Visitor Centre and to go on a lovely walk.

Whitby Holiday Rentals have plenty of accommodation in the heart of Whitby, for you to feel at home during your stay here in North Yorkshire.
