The most convenient car park I've found in Whitby is the long stay one on Church Street, on the Abbey side of town which has 92 parking spaces. Although not the largest car park you can usually get a space throughout the morning, but by the afternoon it can be very busy (see photo below). It is opposite Rods & Reels tackle shop, has a public toilet next to it, is reasonably priced and is not a massive distance away from either pier or The Scar (about a 10 minute walk).

On the other side of the Esk is the Railway Station car park (below), which again is within a reasonable walking distance of both piers and The Scar. It has 60 parking spaces.

The largest car park in Whitby is the one just behind the Abbey (below). It can easily accommodate 415 cars. This is a seasonal car park and tickets are only required between 1st March and the 31st October. This is closer to the East Pier and The Scar than the other car parks, but you have to negotiate the 199 Steps. It isn't so bad going down them, but it can be a killer getting back up!
