Enjoy urban tranquility at Pannett Park, built on land purchased by local philanthropist and politician Robert Pannett in 1902. This public park, which includes an art gallery and a museum, is a favorite leisure spot for locals and visitors alike. Set a little time aside for a visit to Whitby Museum, which narrates the city’s fascinating history and displays the famous "Hand of God" (a dried and pickled hand of a man hanged for committing murder). Walk out onto the museum’s terrace to enjoy views of the city and the iconic Whitby Abbey. The park is also noted for its manicured gardens, sprawling green lawns, and wooded areas.

  • Very well kept park with a good range of plants for the keen horticulturists. Interesting sculpture has been added. The museum of Whitby is worth a visit.
  • Lovely park, with lots of different garden rooms to look at. Beautiful rose beds, which smelt fantastic. Loved the flower clock and we sat and ate lunch by the lily pond. Great paintings inside. Really worth a couple of hours or longer
