come... experience... the 'real Staithes' ...
to find us and ‘Parking’
note - there is NO parking within the old part of Staithes, in fact, we
would like to politely request that you do not bring a vehicle down the bank
into the old part of the village.
car parks are available for you to use. Both
are accessible from the A174.
first car park is situated on Cowbar, it is free of charge but has no toilets.
This car park is on top of the cliffs giving a wonderful view over the
sea to Hartlepool and
second car park is situated in the newer part of Staithes.
You need to turn right just past the Captain Cook Pub, in fact the road
leads you into the car park, may we politely request that you do not turn left
here as there really is no where to park in the old village.
While there is a charge for this car park (you will need an all day
ticket) public toilets and a visitor’s information point are available.
leaving the car park (on foot) you need to turn right into Staithes Lane carry
on until you come to the top of the bank you then have to choose.
Either head down the bank or take the footpath to the right of the bank.
you have chosen the bank it is just a matter of following the high street, you
will pass the Captain Cook Museum and Staithes Heritage Center on your right
(well worth a visit). As you round
the corner you will be able to see right along the high street to the
you have chosen the footpath, this leads you down lots and lots of steps onto
the seafront, but you do have some wonderful views both of the village and out
to sea. There are several sets of
steps that will lead you to the high street then onto the seafront.
you are now on the seafront… J
as you go onto the seafront at the bottom of
aim to leave from this point at 10am; please do be punctual as the tides wait
for no man or woman…
The day will finish back in Staithes at 4pm approximately.
have taking the decision to meet you on Staithes seafront rather than in the car
park as we feel that the walk down thought the village, with us as guides could
take all day…!
this could be another course…?
