A beautiful Victorian house steeped in history
The Langley was built in 1851 and opened as the Lancaster Boarding House in 1854. George Hudson, known for his interest in the railways, came to Whitby and immediately fell in love with the town. He saw its potential as a place for the new wealthy industrialists of the north to visit. Whitby also had its own Spa at the time and taking of the waters was very fashionable in those days.
George Hudson had a vision of Whitby having its own Royal Crescent, just like Bath, so he bought the land now known as the West Cliff and commissioned a builder by the name of Langdale, to build a grand crescent for visitors. The neighbouring streets were to be built with houses for the gentry, shipping merchants, solicitors etc. The crescent was never completed.
During the Second World War, the M.O.D. took possession of the buildings on the sea front for military barracks and The Langley was turned into accommodation for the Army. The officers were based at the Royal Hotel, of course!
It is said that you could walk from one end of the crescent to the other without going outside, as doorways were knocked through. The lovely Victorian railings were taken down as the metal was required for the war effort.

“Great Place to Spend a Few Days”
We stayed at The Langley, Whitby for three nights in July 2019. We thought it was one of the best places we have ever stayed at. From the start, Andi went out of his way to assist us, even carrying our luggage up three floors! The place has received recent renovation and is in pristine condition. Andi and Kerry pay great attention to detail resulting in a true five-star experience. The breakfasts were excellent and served in a classy dining room by Andi. Nothing was too much trouble. In summary, if you go to Whitby, you should stay at The Langley, an experience not to be missed.
1st time we have stayed at The Langley and would we go back to stay again, yes without a doubt _ from the welcome to the goodbye, the cleanliness of the room, the little extras, the breakfasts all 1st class, nothing was too much for Andy and Kerry, in our opinion it will hard going to better this place and not overpriced.
“Best b&b in Whitby”
This was our 5th stay at the langley and it gets better and better everytime. You get a lovely welcome from andi when u arrive. The breakfast is amazing with a lovely range to choose from. We have stayed in 4 of the 6 rooms and they are all outstanding with lovely views of the seafront. The little extra touches in the bedroom are lovely. Cant wait to return. This is by far the best b&b we have ever stayed in and we never want our stay to end. Would highly recommend this to anyone visiting whitby
