Our Highlights

Sennen: I liked lots of things in Whitby.  The museum was great because I found the stuffed animals very interesting.  I also loved seeing what life was like in Whitby as we walked around the town.  The food was yummy in the tea room. To finish off the trip, Whitby Abbey was great.

Louisa: I really liked Robin Hood's Bay because I found lots of fossils.
