Valentine’s Day in Whitby can be as romantic as it sounds with our top tips.

Whitby is a beautifully romantic place all year round, so it’s no surprise it is popular during the festival of love that is Valentine’s Day.

We’ve put together some top tips for making some Valentine’s Day in Whitby memories to cherish.

Start the day with a wander around the local independent shops. A piece of handmade Whitby jet jewellery from one of the Jet Jewellery makers, would make perfect treasured gift. Visit Ebor Jetworks on Church Street for something special.

Start with a brisk walk along the pier. This may sound chilly, and it will be, but imagine the cool, brisk air blowing as you listen to the waves crashing against the rocks, whilst enjoying a warming hug from your loved one.

Then warm up with a Valentine’s Afternoon Tea at Hetty & Betty. Ok, so we may a little biased on this one, but our reviews show our Afternoon Teas are the perfect way to enjoy a special treat. And they are great for warming up cold noses, as they include unlimited hot drinks. Our Valentine’s Day themed Afternoon Tea is the perfect way to enjoy lunch with the one you love.

Next is a wander to the Art Galleries up and down Flowergate, Skinner Street and Silver Street, where you can see work from local artists.

Take a seat up on the West Cliff, and watch the sun set over the sea, holding hands with the one you love, making future plans.

To end the day enjoy a beer in one of Whitby’s fine pubs, such as The Ship which sits directly on the Harbour.

Whatever you decide to do, and how to celebrate, do it your way.
