One of the most well known parts of Whitby is the famous 199 Steps leading from Church Street up to St Mary’s Church and of course Whitby Abbey. Climbing these stairs and reaching the summit is an absolute must for anyone visiting this unique seaside town, if not just for the experience then for the views of the harbour and West bank from the top of Whitby’s East Cliff.
Standing from the top of the 199 Steps viewers can see the panorama that is the town, harbour, sea and horizon, all in one breathtaking vista. At The North Yorkshire Gallery our resident landscape photographer, Laurie Smithies, has visited this spot often as an inspiration for a number of the pictures featured in our gallery.
Please feel free to browse through our selection of images of Whitby’s 199 Steps. All our landscape photographs are exclusive to The North Yorkshire Gallery and are intended to show our beautiful region at its best.
