Cheap Things to Do In Whitby With Kids

Every parent knows the feeling of dread when they arrive for a day out and see the £ sign everywhere, but a day out with kids in Whitby doesn’t have to be expensive. 

Thank you to Hetty & Betty for a fabulous afternoon tea. Arrived perfectly in time for lunch and we are both amazed at much fab cakes we have left over, which I’m sure will have vanished by tea time.

Highly recommend these guys and we’ll definitely be paying them a visit when we are allowed .

Exceptional Afternoon Tea

Hetty and Betty cafe did a fabulous afternoon tea for our Anniversary. Service and staff were lovely, helpful polite and quick service.

Cafe was exceptionally clean and organised, during these trying times. But still felt a relaxing atmosphere.

The food was impeccable, very fresh, a good amount, with a lot of care and thought gone into unique presentation.

We had the spooky afternoon tea, themed for Halloween weekend.

We will happily return again to try more of their themed teas.

October 2020, Tripadvisor review

Oh my goodness! My mum and I received an afternoon tea on Sunday and I cannot believe how amazing it was (in fact we have just finished it!). There was so much. lots of lovely sandwiches, pork pies (and good ones too) and quiche. The scones were delicious (big too) and clotted cream and jam, the cakes (2 big slices each, chocolate and victoria sponge) were beautiful. As I opened the boxes they were the gift that kept on giving. I really cannot recommend them highly enough, I think everyone should treat themselves, we all need a little spoiling at this current time. Go on indulge yourselves, you won’t be disappointed I promise.
