Day 3 - The North Yorkshire Moors Railraod
We visit the seaside resort of Whitby, where we discover the
brooding clifftop Abbey ruins. Overlooking the North Sea, the
structure was a 7th-century Christian monastery that later became a
Benedictine abbey, and its truly fascinating to explore. We
continue with an insight into the town's coastal heritage at the
RNLI Lifeboat Station. The station is one of the RNLI's oldest, and
we have a look around and presentation. You also have free time in
the town, perhaps to take a stroll on the beach with some fish and
chips. We join the scenic North Yorkshire Moors Railway, making the
return journey by steam train. Dinner is a delicious
Yorkshire-themed affair at our hotel.
*Steam-hauled where possible.
