Getting There & Away

You can reach Whitby and the villages along the northern edge of the national park by train from Middlesborough (with connections to the rest of the country), via the Esk Valley Railway (www.eskvalleyrailway.co.uk).

The Yorkshire Coastliner 840 (www.coastliner.co.uk) bus service runs from Leeds and York to Pickering, Goathland and Whitby, and the 843 runs from Leeds and York to Malton and Scarborough. Check schedules online because not all buses run to every destination and services are reduced on Sunday.
