Whitby is a popular choice for visitors all year round. It is well known for its maritime history, the Abbey, Dracula, Captain Cook and Whitby Jet. Board a boat trip, catch some surf and sand, and meander through the cobbled streets and yards.

There's always something happening throughout the town, with festivals and fairs held throughout the year. These include Whitby Folk Week, the Whitby Regatta and the popular Goth Weekends. See what is happening at Visit Whitby.
