Once home to Captain James Cook, Whitby has a fine seafaring tradition and still operates as a fishing port. Tourism has grown enormously in recent years, due in part to the character of the town, its association with Whitby jet, the Dracula legend and its reputation for top class fish ‘n chips. Whitby is also the gateway to the Esk Valley and the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors. The beach is sandy and patrolled by lifeguards in season. Highly recommended.
