Whitby Harbour

Anchor Whitby LogoOur hotel occupies a commanding position with wonderful views over the beaches, harbour and lovely old town … and towards the dramatic abbey ruins.

Bursting with seafaring heritage, Whitby’s narrow cobbled streets invite you to step back in time … so much so that you might expect to bump into Captain Cook or Count Dracula!!!
