Runswick Bay is a gorgeous fishing village just North of Whitby.  The beach is sandy and safe for children.  You can walk along the cliffs from here to other villages.  It is very picturesque and well worth a visit for the day.

Staithes is just up the coast from Runswick Bay, another fishing village with an attractive harbour.  It doesn't have the beach like Runswick Bay but it does have a lovely pub right next to the sea.  Staithes has connections with Captain Cook and the museum is well worth a visit.

Whitby is worth visiting at any time.  If you go during the "Goth Weeks" expect to feel underdressed.  Everyone drives around in Hearses and pimped up Harleys.  They dress up in Victorian Gothic outfits, mostly in black.  You can walk up the steps to the Abbey where Dracula was supposed to end up after his sea voyage.  Whitby has great shops, its own special Jet jewellery, fantastic fish and chips and a special pie shop which I will write about in my blog after my visit there......

Scarborough is huge compared to Filey and there is plenty to do.  There are beautiful gardens and houses close to the cliffs, excellent shops, a cricket ground for watching our beloved Yorkshire team, fabulous traditional entertainment for children and adults alike and there is quite a surfing scene for the more adventurous.
