Summertime in Whitby and Rosedale Abbey

Summer usually kicks-off in June and the long-days and lighter nights make the whole Yorkshire Moors and Yorkshire Heritage Coast sparkle with colours of green fields, blue sea, and purple heather on the moors.

The heather-time and hay-making in August mark the high-point of summer and now is the time to visit Whitby or Rosedale Abbey for sight-seeing and trips to the seaside which is close-by.

The coastal route from Whitby to Saltburn, Staithes or Sandend to the North, or Robin Hoods Bay to the South makes for a great day’s scenic sight-seeing.
