    I'm searching for a holiday for my family for this summer (bit late i know), and i'm trying to find one up North (so i can visit Durham, hehe), even though my dad is moaning about the really long drive (8 hours+). I've found one in a place called Whitby, which is quite near Scarborough. Anyway, i was wondering if anyone knows what this part of England is like, especially what there is to do in the area? I'll probably not get any replies to this thread *waits*

    Scarborough's horrible.

    How about in The Lakes? That's not far from Durham.

    Whitby's nice! We were looking to move there from way down here in Cambridge! It's all coasty and county-like at the same time!

    My family goes there literally every year for no good reason whatsoever. It's okay, I guess. Certainly not my cup of tea.

    You'll have to visit Fountain's Abbey if you go there, a very beautiful place (near Harrogate, which is a fair drive from Whitby).

    Whitby :thinks: I've been there once for a school holiday and once for a familly holiday.

    Erm...Sea side, nice(ish) beach, church with 99 steps to walk up hill, museams on countless things and a ghost walk. Nice jewellery stuff with all the black jet.

    If I can remember anything else, I'll post.

    Harrogate's the best part of Yorkshire, but Cumbria's my favourite county at the moment.

    I'm now looking at a holiday place near Lake Windemere. However, again there seems to be a severe shortage of things to do in the area!

    Yeah, I do remeber the Whitby school trip being dominated by museams....compared with when we went to Bude which had the Milkway centre and other fun stuff.

    There is not! It depends on your interests but there's sooo much to do in the Lakes, especially if you enjoy watersports/walking/visiting historical sites/literature/gingerbread

    It's so pretty in that area - a few years ago I went on a PGL to Patterdale Hall, so if your family are into adventure holidays... massive lake, and the watersport facilities are good.
