Whitby is a prime destination on the Yorkshire Coast. The town sits either side of the harbour at the mouth of the River Esk. Whitby has the sea, the harbour, the beaches and the cliffs. Whether it is bird, seal or whale watching, surfing, rowing, sailing or just building sandcastles, Whitby has it all.­­ If that is not enough, within a few minutes you can get out onto the breath-taking scenery of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and its delightful moorland villages. The possibilities for walking, riding and mountain biking are endless. For those who like to dine or shop, the town has a wealth of opportunities; quirky teashops, lots restaurants and of course the best fish and chips! Whitby has more than its fair share of traditional pubs, offering with good ale, many child and dog friendly and with top quality pub grub. For shopping we have a wide variety of boutiques, jewellers and food shops and also three supermarkets. 
Overlooked by the impressive Benedictine ruins of Whitby Abbey, and with a maze of cobbled streets and alleyways, Whitby offers something for everyone. For history lovers there is the Celtic connection of the original Abbey, preceded by the Roman signal station. Later we have Captain Cook, the jet industry and whaling. For those with a more literary outlook, the most famous connection is with Bram Stoker’s Dracula - the stimulus for the famous biannual Whitby Goth Weekend - but there are also connections with Hermann Melville and Lewis Carrol.  For lovers of geology it is a rare, rich and fascinating area of Jurassic Coast, with many important fossil finds and opportunities even just walking the beaches. Whitby Museum is worth a visit for more amazing local artefacts. Other attractions include the steam trains of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, many festivals and weekends including the Folk Week, Whitby Regatta, 60s Festival, Angling Festival, Beer Festival and Wartime Weekend, plus many more. Scarborough and Filey are close by, and the nearest airport Durham Tees Valley is only approximately 50 miles away. 
There is a good range of housing in Whitby and the surrounding countryside, from character period properties to modern new builds. Partners in the Practice live in a wide range of locations from Whitby itself, Scarborough and villages on the coast and on the moors. Some have commuted from York.
The area has many schools which are rated as good, with some attaining outstanding by OFSTED.
