Well worth the effort of climbing the 199 steps to reach the Abbey. Once there you get spectacular views across the harbour. Great tea room available also

You can view this spectacular landmark from mikes around Whitby. This attraction is managed by English Heritage and you can access it by the via steps, well worth the effort.

Its worth the climb up the steps to visit Whitby Abbey. As well as finding the abbey ruins interesting the views across Whitby and the surrounding coastline are spectacular.
