Whitby in Times
Top Ten Seaside
Places to Live

At number 7 is Whitby, North Yorkshire
Why is it so great? How many towns can boast a sea view on one side and the majesty of the moors on the other? The setting for parts of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Whitby may be short on nightlife but it’s perfect for buyers seeking an outdoorsey life. Sailing and windsurfing are popular.
Who lives here? Active retirees and York downsizers.
House prices: Cute fishermen’s cottages from £225,000; Georgian town houses from £400,000 and smart, harbourside apartments for about £225,000.
