Santa To Visit Whitby Winter Wonderland

Where does Santa go on holiday? It seems the answer could be Whitby...

With the festive season looming, Santa is making his way to the beautiful beaches of Whitby as of the 16th of December to join in with the fun and festivities occurring along the beautiful Yorkshire coastline. Beginning at 1pm, Santa will arrive at the Captain Cook Monument on the West Cliff and stroll across to the Bandstand, West Pier.

The 1.5 mile walk which is set to last around 45 minutes will take Santa and his participants along West Cliff to Upgang Ravine, leading down to the beach towards West Pier. Santa outfits, antlers and bright red noses are optional, but will no doubt please Santa! The entry fee for adults is £2 and family tickets costing £5, with registration taking place from 12.30pm at Captain Cook’s monument.

This event is being held by Friends of Whitby Lifeboat, with all entry proceeds going to the R.N.L.I. in Whitby. All children must be accompanied by an adult for this fun, festive event to welcome in the Christmas holidays.

This event will accompany the exciting new shows and films that have recently been announced at Whitby Pavilion, including Breaking Dawn Part 2, The Hobbit and Great Expectations. As well as this, you can also enjoy ‘A Whitby Wassail’ by the local Whitby Community Choir on the 12th of December for £4 a ticket, a great way to get into the Christmas spirit in time for Santa’s big arrival.

Whitby is the perfect getaway for the winter holiday season, with a variety of spectacular events combined with a relaxing and tranquil atmosphere for the perfect holiday destination all year round. A family friendly location with a wide choice of restaurants and bars, Whitby is the perfect place if you fancy something a little different over the Christmas holidays.

Due to popular demand, there is ample choice for self catering in Whitby, with cottages spread throughout the town and surrounding areas, allowing you to immerse yourself in the undeniable charm and beauty that Whitby has to offer.
