Points of Interest

Whitby Abbey

Whitby Abbey

Perched high on a cliff, it's easy to see why the haunting remains of Whitby Abbey were inspiration for Bram Stoker's gothic tale of 'Dracula'. Sink your teeth into years of history, amazing views and a packed events programme, just a short climb away from the town of Whitby.

Captain Cook Museum

Captain Cook Museum

The Museum is in the 17th century house in Grape Lane on Whitby's harbourside where the young James Cook lodged as apprentice. It was here that Cook trained as a seaman and acquired those maritime skills which led to his epic voyages of discovery

Whitby Pier & Lighthouses

Whitby Pier & Lighthouses

In 1632 West Pier was rebuilt using sandstone blocks. Repairs, rebuilding and lengthening continued throughout the 1600’s, 1700’s and 1800’s. An extension was added to the pier between 1908 and 1914 and an interceptor wall was added to the bullnose of the main arm to reduce the swell entering the harbour.

199 Steps

199 Steps

The 199 steps are a unique attraction in Whitby, luring visitors to make the demanding – yet rewarding! – climb down and up them. It is customary to count the steps as you climb and join the debate as to whether there really are 199 steps. Just try not to lose count...
