This Yorkshire seaside town has been crowned one of the best places to visit in England

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside…

We all know and love this popular Yorkshire seaside destination, and now this survey has officially confirmed it.

Fancy a trip to the seaside? Silly question, of course you do.

As the sun is slowly starting to make an appearance, there’s no time like the present to grab some fish and chips and enjoy a day out on the beach.

And for most of us Yorkshire folk, the seaside town to visit has got to be Whitby.

Located on the North Yorkshire coast at the mouth of the River Esk, the town offers jaw-dropping views and is drenched in Gothic history.

Whether you’re earning to climb the iconic 199 steps up to the Abbey, or you fancy visiting one its many quaint pubs – a day out in Whitby is always a day out well spent.

And it seems like readers of The Express agree, as they’ve voted Whitby as one of the best places to visit in England.

Praised for its “traditional British seaside experience, with plenty of beautiful walks for active holidaymakers”, it’s got us questioning why we’d even consider going abroad when we’ve got Whitby on our doorstep?

Bursting with attractions, from Whitby Abbey to the Dracula experience, you’re truly spoilt for choice with exciting things to do when you’re not taking in the extraordinary coastal views.

Not to mention the cracking selection of fish and chips on offer from the Magpie Cafe and Trenchers, both iconic institutions who’ve been serving the seaside delicacy for over 50 years and were both named in the top 10 best fish and chips in the country.

What an accolade.

So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags, your bucket and spade, and take a trip to the seaside.
