  • Address: Whitby, North Yorkshire, England
With its blue flag beaches, colorful fishing harbor and windswept cliffs, Whitby has long ranked among England’s most popular coastal towns, first earning fame as a Georgian seaside resort, then for its booming jet mining industry in Victorian times, and now infamous for its abundance of ghosts and thriving Goth scene.

A highlight of the North York Moors National Park and a key stop on the famous North Yorkshire Moors steam railway, Whitby’s striking good looks and historic connections make it a must-see for visitors to the north. Highlights include the cliff-top Whitby Abbey, which famously inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and the Captain Cook Museum, devoted to the legendary local explorer, while simple pleasures abound - pick up some fish ‘n’ chips from the renowned Magpie Café, stroll along the scenic River Esk waterfront or shop for jewelry made with Whitby Jet.

Practical Info

Whitby is located in the North Yorks Moors National Park on England’s northeast coast, approximately 45 miles from York.
