Feeling the pressure of the half term that’s looming? 
As a family with young kids, we understand! 
Here are four handpicked events that will help you stay sane and entertain little adults in your clan. 
1. Watch ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ (12a) at the Whitby Pavilion (just over the road from the Riviera) Friday 26 May, 2.30pm; Saturday 27 May, 2.30pm; Sunday 28 May, 2.30pm; Monday 29 May, 2.30pm; Tuesday 30 May, 2.30pm; Wednesday 31 May, 2.30pm; Thursday 1 June, 11am. 
2.Delve into our town’s amazing past at Whitby Museum, Pannett Park, and find out about dinosaurs, goths, and the whaling industry. This much-loved attraction is about a 10-minute walk from us, too! 
3. Hear about the most famous vampire of them all, Count Dracula, at Whitby Abbey (where else!), from 27th to 29th May at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. 
4. East Barnby Outdoor Centre will feature their supervised Family Activity Days during the half term, suitable for children aged 9 years to 16 years. Visit East Barnby Outdoor Centre and be in with a chance of tiring out the kids! 
And not forgetting some of the free things to do in or near Whitby! 
Visit the beach (remembering dog restrictions are now in place along the Yorkshire Coast). 
Whitby has two lovely stretches of sand and the picturesque villages of Runswick Bay, Sandsend and Saltwick Bay, which hug the Yorkshire coastline, are close by. Just remember to check the tides. Click on Whitby Beaches for more information. 
Walk (or cycle) along parts of the Cinder Track, once the home of the railway line between Whitby and Scarborough. The track follows one of the most beautiful routes in the area, and measures 21 miles in total. 
For all your biking needs, visit Dr Sprockets on Skinner Street, Whitby 
Did you know that when the railway was in operation, parts of the route were among the steepest in the whole country, with a gradient of 1 in 39? The route operated for about 80 years before closing in 1965. 
Have a great half term from everyone at the Riviera Guesthouse.
