🔹WHITBY & ROBIN HOOD'S BAY🔹
It’s time to head to the east coast and to the sea-side resort of Whitby! While the sea might be too cold for a quick swim (Welcome to England), this seaside resort is famed for its fishing, and there’s no better place to try the traditional English meal- fish and chips! The town has an interesting history, from the apparent first landing place of Dracula, straight from Transylvania to the great Whitby Abbey, which housed the earliest recorded English poet. Throw in the occasional Viking invasion, and you get the idea. Fossil and artefact shops are aplenty, so make sure you take the time to explore and see what this quaint little town has to offer.
Heading down the coast, we arrive at Robin Hood’s Bay. While the origin of the name is uncertain and there is still dispute whether the man himself ever visited, the name has stuck for many centuries. Legend has it that Robin forced a host of French pirates that came to pillage on English soil to surrender, before famously returning those goods to the poor. Robin hood’s bay was a widely known place for ‘dodgy-dealings’ and questionable characters. It’s natural isolation, marshy surroundings and narrow, winding streets made it perfect for smuggling in alcohol and tobacco, which, presumably, must have paid a lot better than the fishing!
