Lighthouse · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Whitby Lighthouse is a lighthouse operated by Trinity House. It is on Ling Hill, on the coast to the south-east of Whitby, beyond Saltwick Bay. To distinguish it from the two lighthouses in Whitby itself (which protect the town's harbour) it is sometimes known as Whitby High lighthouse (and is referred to as such on Admiralty charts)

  • I like seeing the lighthouse when me and my wife visit Whitby one of the places I like is up top were the steps are near the Abbey you get a really good view up there . And if your down were the bandstand is just look across and go up the hill to were the captain cook monument is you get a lovely view as well looking over to it from up there sit on one of the seats and watch the people and the world go by the time seems to stop . or get on a boat trip and pass the lighthouse or just walk down past the bandstand But one thing you have not got to forget your camera to take some photos of this lovely views you get when looking over to the lighthouse
