    Staithes looks idyllic. I've been to Whitby (2 day trips) but never heard of Staithes. Yorkshire remains one of my all time favs. Katherine :)

    Great place to be. Nice pics. Was there in 1998. Stayed in a campsite. Also had a field trip here (Geology)

    I love this place too - spent many a great New Year here! Your photos are brilliant. Can you believe you have the only Staithes pages on the whole of VT?? Staithes really is a hidden gem it seems
