Avast me Mateys…

For something a little different, grab yer mateys, climb aboard yer Sea Rover and head to Whitby Pirate day on the 15th! A great day of live music and pirate themed activities provides you with the perfect opportunity to grab some grub and grog and appreciate a day of swashbucklin’ fun and games!

Whitby Railway

If you’re a railway enthusiast, Whitby is the place for you! Experience the North Yorkshire Moors Railway Heritage Diesel Gala which includes a trip along the line, visiting guest engines between Pickering and Whitby.

On Your Bike

If a speedy cycle round the North Yorkshire Moors is more your forte, enjoy an 18.5 mile ride out, grab your bike and helmet and head to Sutton Bank National Park Centre on the 22nd. This route isn’t for the feint hearted, a fully functional bike with spares will be required as well as food and drink, and ideally experience in adventure mountain bike riding.

Attention Art Lovers:

A variety of art shows will be happening throughout the month to satisfy your creative side, including Yorkshire on My Mind – an exhibition of art work inspired by the beautiful Yorkshire landscape from artists portraying their vision in photographs, silk collage, felt and wood.
