Botham’s Bakery

Back in 1865, Elizabeth Botham started her Bakery in Whitby. She began by selling her delicious bread and cakes from a basket at the local market. Eventually, she could purchase the premises on Skinner Street and establish her shop. Five generations later, the Botham family still proudly continues her traditions and serves up their famous baked goods.

Their specialities include the Whitby lemon buns, Yorkshire brack, plum bread, shah ginger biscuits, and chocolate Japonaise ‘Japs’, but their menu is much more extensive than that. They also have a fantastic range of seasonal treats that are eagerly anticipated each year, such as their delightful strawberry tarts, winter brack, and Easter simnel cakes.
