  • You cannot come to Whitby and not do the steps. Steep abs lots if them but once at the top it’s worth it. What a view. It really gets your breath back. You must do them  more »
  • Nice walk down to the harbour and the shops and eateries and 199 steps to climb back up afterwards, the views are nice from the top and it burns off a few calories after eating your chips!!  more »
  • The views of Whitby and of Abbey from the top of these steps is phenomenal! It is a pretty easy climb as the steps are pretty shallow in depth. There is a cobbled road that runs parallel to the steps and so buggies and wheelchairs can also ascend and descend. We'll worth a visit!
  • One of the best places to visit,, beautiful scenery, beautiful town. Well worth going up the 199 steps as the Abbey is stunning, and you cannot get better views anywhere.
