Thanks Jaime! Too bad we can’t work out a quick visit.

> Not sure on York but know Whitby area fairly well. Robin Hoods Bay is worth a visit. If you're facing the Abbey, it's a couple of miles up the road to the right. Very quaint and higgledy-piggledy - great fish and chips! We often rent a farm house up there on the cliffs.

>> HI All,
>> I'm wondering if any of you can give me some ideas on a few things. My wife and I are going to try to get tickets for Whitby in October as soon as they go on sale. If we get them we'll be staying in York for a day. Question - Are there any good antique stores around York that aren't super expensive, and also what would any locals recommend for us yanks to do while there for a day.' Good restaurants, etc. Any recommendations are appreciated! Anyone else heading to Whitby this year? This will be a quick trip in and out. Arriving on a Thursday and heading home that following Monday.
