Good spot if you can get there late in the evening for the following day .As you drive down into whitby you will see a big sailing boat on display turn right you have a co/op on your right drive onto large pay and display car park at the back are several large bays for motorhomes, no charge after 6pm till 9am next day,then you can get a 24hr ticket for 6.00 you can be in the center off whitby in less than 2 minute walk,very popular with motorhomes

Very well-timed info Jellybean.

I'm trecking up from the West Country next week for a first-time visit to Whitby/Scarborough area.

I'm meeting hotel based friends during the following week in Scarborough so does anyone know of a similar spot there that I could trundle back to after a convivial evening?

just got back loads of parking ,just go up the prom past the fun fair onto the sea wall,the further you go on the more spots you will find we stayed there all night no problems .most of the pay and display on that coast works as follows .you pay from 9am till 6pm so if you arrive in the evening you dont pay till the next day ,so then thats up to you .some do a 6.00 all day charge which means it will take you till 9am the next day .make sure you go up to sandsend just above whitby its a great spot and another overnight spot good luck.

Dont forget to check out Robin Hoods Bay, near Whitby;), coach park in the village looks ok for a stopover or there are 2 wildspots on the moor road just above Fyling Thorpe.

Good Luck.

Hi
New to Campervanning and tried most of the above places but found as others remarked that though there was 24 hr parking there was no overnight kip.
The guy in the booth at the Co-op carpark at Whitby said that people regularly overnight in there but as the sign said otherwise we didn't chance it as once we have had a drinky its no good if we are asked to move on.
Thought the sea life centre would have been perfect at Scalby as we would have loved to visit the centre next day and use the pub at night,but the "no overnight stop" put us off. Do we have to be a little more cheeky or what,of course as newbies we are a bit naive.
Managed a really peaceful night in a picnic spot overlooking Robin Hoods bay as a local bobby told us the best place to wildcamp is over the moors area and they certainly wouldn't be bothering us.

Yep we did Scalby last weekend no problems at all; stayed Friday night to Sunday night without moving!

Checked with council Friday before setting off and if you pay to park in a coach bay at Scalby for the day (5.50) the ticket is transferable and can be used in any of the Scarborough coach parks during the vaild date.

I thinks that's great if you get fed up of the Scalby side and want to go into town, there's a coach park near the old town hall I believe, as well as a couple more on the North side.

Hi Peeps

Stayed on the car park overnight Saturday in the far corner near the boat yard - three vans in the party but there were probably about ten of us there - even a 30ft RV - no bother at all - probably safety in numbers. At the meter where we paid, 6 for 24hrs, there were no no-overnighting signs but at the meter by the entrance there was quite a big sign. We decided to take our chance and stayed there.
Apparently the car park is regularly used and they normally stay in a line, up against the edge, near to the Co-op car park but one that was parked up there by itself moved down close to us - as I said safety in numbers.
There were also other MH's in one of the adjacent car parks overlooking the river - a better scenic spot but we were a little wary in doing this for the first time but would try next time.
Hope this helps
Chrissy

We have just camped for 6 nights behind the fish market at Scarborough 6 for 24hours, had a trip to Bridlington, parked up at harbour car park, filled our watertank up and both had showers, then refilled tank again. Moved up to Whitby parked on long stay car park behind the Co-op stopped for 2 nights, again 6 for 24 hours.There was a Dutch camper and a Spanish camper also parked up, we filled water tank up behind the harbour masters office and both had showers. Both car parks were signposted with no sleeping or cooking, but we had no problems whatsoever.

We have stayed in the Pavillion carpark on the cliff top immediatly to the west side of the harbour. 5 mins walk into town down the steps by Captain cook statue. Free overnight but pay during the day. Weve stayed there on perhaps 10 separate occasions. No facilities but quiet and secure.This is the carpark for the Pavillion theatre and tourists.

Hi we live close to the Moors so not often we stay there but we did stay the night near Westerdale. We drove up out of Castleton and followed the first Westerdale sign and you will see a large gravel car park, a very peacefull night.
There are always vans parked near Danby Beacon that just off the road from Castleton to Kirbymoorside about 5 miles on the left out of Castleton.
If you ask you can stay at the Lion Inn on Blackey moor its a great Inn always busy with walkers, great food and you can take your dog into the pub with you.
There is also a large layby just near Hutton Le Hole, Travalling from the Lion Inn towards Hutton Le Hole it is on your Right.
WE have been going over to Chop Gate (pronounced Yat) a few weekends there are two possible spots one a large car park at the top of the bankout of Great broughton and about 5 miles further on there is a forest car park with toilets and no signs about overnight stays. Both are on the left side going from Great broughton to Helmsley.
