Location County Country
Whitby N. Yorks England

DescriptionPicturesque fishing town on the North Yorkshire coast.
What to ShootThe beautiful twin piers - of course. Oh, and the Abbey.
What to TakeTake some ND filters as this location really lends itself to long exposures.
ParkingIf you are visiting out of season, and at sunrise (as you should), or outside peak times, you can normally find somewhere along Pier Road, or Khyber Pass Road to park.
Best TimesSunrise and sunset are both great times here. This one is definitely worth hauling yourself out of bed early for.
