For my birthday my hubby treated me to a weekend away to Whitby and York, two places I have always wanted to go and had never been. What a weekend, full of scampi (obviously) in Whitby and fat rascals (a scone/rock cake) in York. Amazing! Both places are defo worth a visit, both have fab food, ace views and yummy food! I took soo many pictures I am splitting them, these are the ones from Whitby! York will follow ;-)
Whitby is known for Dracula, and its massive goth weekend as well as its amazing scampi! I was really surprised at how lovely it is and how far the beautiful beach stretched, would be nice on a hot sunny day!
We had scampi and chips here, the Magpie Cafe is in this years Good Food Guide, and I can agree yum yum!
The Shepherds Purse, a wonderful shop, I was super excited as I follow them on facebook but had no idea they were in whitby! We brought some rose and lotus flower loose leaf tea to try!
I would love to have my palm read but they were shut boo!!
Finally The Abbey which was inspiration for Dracula, you can see why it was misty on our way down to Whitby, it look really eerie through the fog!
