About Whitby

Whitby is a quaint, traditional fishing village on the North Yorkshire Coast. Famed for its connection to Captain Cook, Dracula and its author Bram Stoker, Whitby has a long and rich history as a port and fishing town.

There are said to be a network of underground tunnels connecting caves and hiding places for loot, something to look out for on your trip to Whitby. Consistently ranked as one of the best UK seaside resorts, Whitby has a lot offer and it is clear to see why people keep coming back.

The town has a contemporary restaurant scene and European café culture, with excellent food, drinks and entertainment available throughout the year.

There is also a wide range of attractions to look out for on your visit to Whitby including excellent walking on the North York Moors, which are just a stone’s throw away by car. There is also the well known North York Moors Railway which has numerous events on its steam engines during the holiday season, including Whitby War Weekend, which sees whole villages along the line dress up in authentic 1940s costume to re-enact wartime life.

A trip to Whitby would not be complete without a visit to the historic Whitby Abbey, made famous as a key location in the Dracula tale; the Abbey overlooks the town from the East Cliff. If you’re looking to buy a gift during your stay then Whitby Jet is an excellent local gemstone that is highly regarded for its quality and shine.
