Quirky Yorkshire youth hostel adds to schools offering

Date Posted: 29/06/2015

The Youth Hostelling Association’s Boggle Hole venue in Whitby has now re-opened after a £1.2 million refurbishment, with developments including an increase in its educational facilities.

A refurbishment on the YHA Boggle Hole in Whitby, North Yorkshire has added a new classroom to the site, as well as a refresh to its dining room, cafe and reception area.

The youth hostel is set in a quirky smugglers cove location in Robin Hood’s Bay.

Manager Peta said:  “Boggle Hole is one of the oldest, most-loved YHAs in the UK. Its rich history of mystery and adventure reveal legendary stories of smugglers landing their treasure and burying it in the hundreds of hidey-holes in the bay, it is a truly magical place.”

Whitby’s maritime heritage is commemorated by statues of Captain Cook and William Scoresby, as well as the whalebone arch that sits at the top of the West Cliff. The Captain Cook museum is a must for school groups.

The town also has a strong literary tradition and connection to Bram Stoker's novel Dracula.
