♔Whitby-North Yorkshire-England


Whitby’s 199 steps attract visitors from all over the world who make the tiring trek from the bottom, to one of the most beautiful views of Whitby you will see.

The first record of the steps was in 1340, but historians believe the steps were made much earlier, and that St Hilda of Whitby (c. 614–680) would use the steps to test the faith of her followers. The steps were originally made of wood and stood for hundreds of years until 1774 when the steps were replaced with Sneaton Stone.
