Our georgian walks are presently lead by Whitby Civic Society member Geoff Wilson and have been going for approximately 12 -15 years, previously led by 3 other society members. The walk has become a regular feature of the Heritage Open Days programme and lasts approximately 2 hours.However, the walk can be arranged at other times for your group. The walk takes us on a discovery of Whitby's marvellous georgian properties and incorporates other interesting facts and topics such as local history and blue plaques.
The walks begin at the lovely vantage point of Whitby's famous 19ft Whale Bone Arch, erected in 2002 to replace the previous badly weathered ones. From here they progress into the town where a circular walk reveals many of Whitby's streets which possess a variety of 16th - 17th century architecture. In the town centre, look up above the modernised shop fronts to see the often beautifully preserved period facades.
The walk ends at the swing bridge where you can then treat yourself to well earned fish & chips, Whitby's most famous dish.
The grand georgian houses of St Hilda's Terrace
