England Part 6: Goathland, Whitby & Scarborough

On Monday morning we set of with my family and Craig's family to spend a few days in Yorkshire. We stayed at a B&B in Goathland which is very picturesque. The local train station & train were used in the Harry Potter films (Hogsmead) and the steam train still travels 30 miles through the dales and moors from Pickering to Whitby on England's east coast.
The view from our bedroom

Sheep roam the village and eat people's plants, which is funny to watch

Fish, chips & mushy peas!


Cockles! My favourite

Sparkly hats that light up. What happens in Whitby stays in Whitby..




On a rainy day you buy everyone wellies

"Take a picture of me with Harry Potter's train mum!" His hat says "Engine Driver".

Whitby Abbey, 675 AD. The inspiration for Bram Stoker's "Dracula". Stoker was from Whitby.
