A Bit About Whitby

With such a fascinating and diverse history it is no wonder Whitby is so well loved. The ancient port on the Yorkshire coast holds many cultural and visual gems close to its chest. The famous Whitby Abbey that Bram Stoker depicted in his novel Dracula still looms over the harbour, a noble ruin of epic size. This has inspired the world famous Goth Festival, which now takes place twice a year, in the spring and around Hallowe’en.

The Whalebone Arch and inspiring bronze statue commemorating Whitby’s most famous son and explorer, Captain Jame Cook, stands proudly facing directly across the harbour to the Abbey. James Cook took took his seamanship apprentice in Whitby and all of the ships used on his three world voyages of exploration were built on the banks of the Esk below.

With its sandy beaches, hidden rock pools, cobbled streets, famous North Yorkshire Moors Railway. iconic donkey rides and, not to mention some of the best fish and chips in the world it is the perfect location to base your family holiday.
