There are so many lovely walks around Whitby and on The North Yorkshire Moors it would be impossible to know where to start  to describe them on a small website, however the wonderful site created by Don Burluraux at North York Moors CAM is all you will ever need. Click on the photo above to see beautifully illustrated descriptions of dozens of walks to suit all capabilities and get excellent advice to help you plan and enjoy a great day out in the countryside.

NYMR Walks

This super video shows some of the walks from the NYMR steam railway stations, an ideal way to get to the heart of the Moors.
Farndale Daffodils

One of the best outings in the country is the Farndale daffodil walk during April each year. If you are visiting Whitby in the spring then plan a day out to see the beautiful flowers, it really is worth it. Follow the link for details and please try to use public transport if possible as the village can become very crowded at times.
Throughout the year Farndale is still a beautiful place to visit so why not take a drive out to the Feversham Arms in the heart of the valley for a great Sunday lunch?

Finally, if you are travelling here from the south you will probably pass the Hole of Horcum, a vast, 400ft deep natural hollow three quarters of a mile across. Why not break your journey, stop in the car park and take the wonderful walk from Saltersgate to the Skelton tower. After your moorland adventure you will arrive in Whitby refreshed and happy, having added another day to your holiday!
