Pannett Park, Whitby Museum & Pannett Art Gallery

Whilst you're staying in Whitby, don't forget to take a walk through Pannett Park.  On a hot day it can be beautifully quiet and peaceful; a welcome break from the busy town centre streets.  Pannett Park has recently been regenerated thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund Parks for People Programme.

The Park is close to Whitby Town Centre and the grounds are well maintained and litter free.  There are lovely places to sit and relax and look at the great view over the rooftops towards the town.  The gardens are beautifully manicured and contain many interesting features.  Well worth a visit!

The Park is home to Pannett Art Gallery which is run by Whitby Town Council and has regularly changing displays and free entry.

Whitby Museum can also be found in Pannett Park, housing a stunning variety of collections and artefacts.  This is too good to miss; it is quite large and has several sections, all spilling over into each other, giving it a wonderful feel.  The staff are enthuisastic and very knowledgeable locals who help as much as they can.

And as if that is not enough, there is a delightful tea shop in the basement of the Museum, serving lovely home made cakes!
