Details

Thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund Parks for People Programme the regeneration of Pannett Park is creating a fun, family friendly environment for everybody to enjoy. Just a stone's throw from the centre of Whitby, Pannett Park offers a haven of peace and quiet with an exciting new play park for children and beautifully kept gardens, lawns and wooded areas for the whole family to enjoy.

The park is home to Pannett Art Gallery with regularly changing displays, and Whitby Museum which houses a stunning variety of collections and artefacts. Visitors can also enjoy panoramic views of the town and Whitby Abbey from the museum terrace.
