Tilly Tour - Part 2

A gorgeous historical sea town on the north east coast of England with its Captain Cook and Count Dracula connections. Pretty harbourside to explore and above the ruins of an old Abbey and church graveyard. This is definitely a place I could revisit and explore more.

The streets in the old town are really quaint , the "yards" have unusual names - perfect for a pose!

Our tour guides for our adventures in the north east of England :-))

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:delightful harbour town overlooked by an Abbey
  • Cons:too many tourists in a small space
  • In a nutshell:somewhere I have to revisit and see more of!

    Great page! Those 'Reflections a la Sandy' are all fantastic! Your page makes me think back to my own visit to Whitby. The thing I remember best are the Abbey ruins! So many photo opps. It was only so windy though, it was hard to hold on to my camera, LOL
