Goth Weekend in Whitby

Something different to enjoy in November. There is also one in April but the November one is the biggest and most popular Goth event. Travelling by rail avoids the problems of car parking in Whitby. You can spend two hours driving round trying to find somewhere on busy Saturdays.

A day out in York

York Minster

This gives you four and a half hours at York – enough time for a leisurely lunch and some quality shopping time. Relax with a car-free day out. The constantly changing scenery along the Esk Valley is an absolute delight. No car park fees or Park and Ride issues. The train station is right near the city centre.

Day out to Stewart Park

This is a great day out for the family. They have a superb cafe there. There is plenty to do and the playground is superb. The park was recently upgraded with National Lottery money and is well worth a visit. So easy to get to by rail.
