Grimsby - Whitby


Market Street
Leaving Grimsby we continued up the east coast headed for Whitby we stopped in the town of Scarborough and visited Scarborough Castle. This ruin was started in 900 AD. There was evidence of settlements in 500 BC from archeological digs and there are remains of a Roman signal station. Scarborugh is also a great shopping town with huge pedestrian malls. Did a little shopping for the grandkids.
On up the coast we stopped at Whitby our and our next hotel but before dinner we were to visit the Whitby Abbey.
Also a ruin (obviously) it was constructed in 657 AD but fell into ruin when Henry 8th took over all religious properties and gave them to his buddies.
Dinner was at the Estbek House in Sands End 5 minutes down the road. Elke made this reservation in January. The lobster thermidor (big surprise) and the duck were amazing.
Tomorrow we are off to SCOTLAND!!!!
