Whitby town is an ancient and beautiful sea port with history going as far back as the founding of its famous Abbey in 657 AD, which still dominates the East Cliff headland, with fantastic views overlooking this most popular seaside resort.

Offering something for everyone, there are many attractions that are connected to the town's fascinating past, from the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, where you can learn about the famous explorer's life, to the Dracula Experience, which guides you through the story and its connection to the town.

The town’s harbour today still shelters a large flotilla of fishing and private leisure vessels from which the town originally grew, and from where it's many renowned seafood restaurants still get their catch. No traditional seaside resort would be complete without a good old fashioned Amusement Arcade, and Whitby has several of these down near its impressive pier by the wide expanse of beautiful sandy beach below the town's West Cliff.
