Things to do in Whitby – May

Around May time the weather will become so much better on the North Yorkshire coast. So, why not book a week away to Whitby?

In May, Whitby returns to its resort town status, rather than its more peaceful setting it maintains during the colder months. Once again becoming one of the most desirable places to go for a break/ holiday in North Yorkshire. Whitby is known for being a traditional British seaside town, with cobbled streets, known for its Fish and Chips, the 199 Steps up to Whitby Abbey and the gorgeous Whitby Beach along the North Yorkshire coast.

Whitby Holiday Rentals can ensure you a comfortable stay in North Yorkshire this May. Providing you with a quaint, top quality apartment to make sure that you have the cosiest experience possible, in Whitby this spring.

Things to do in Whitby during May

During May, Whitby has many different folk events on offer. with the Ironstone American Line Dancing Weekend an annual line dancing festival with live music midway through the month. The Whitby Gospel Music Convention a week later, as well as the Flowergate Folk Festival in the heart of Whitby at the end of the month.

Whitby is of course the perfect blend between a beach town and a countryside town, as you are able to enjoy a nice soothing walk down the beach to Sandsend or possibly take a nice drive out to the North Yorkshire Moors and explore a gorgeous landscape, with Robin Hood’s Bay and Staithes being two notable villages in the same style as Whitby.

For families, Flamingo Land Resort makes for an excellent spring day out, a place which is both a theme park and zoo, with plenty of rides and plenty of animals to see.

Whitby Holiday Rentals offer beautiful apartments in and around the town centre, apartments which you will be settled in, in absolutely no time, and being at very reasonable prices, a week or weekend in North Yorkshire will make for a memorable getaway.
