    Stop here for a moment and look very carefully on top of the Market Place's clock tower - you should see a weather vane. Where you'd expect to see a cockerel however, there is a fish. It will be no surprise for you to learn that it is in fact a cod.

    Look out for the stunning pictures in the window of the North Yorkshire Gallery and roughly opposite is the White Horse and Griffin.

    Let's keep moving. Continue straight.

    This place has a very rich history: James Cook as well as Charles Dickens were guests in the bedrooms above. The bar and restaurant area are a great place to immerse yourself in the Whitby of old: ale houses and open fires

    The first coach service between Whitby and York ran from this location in 1788. Cook has reached Australia 15 years before - but Whitby was poorly connected with the rest of North Yorkshire.

Preview mode limited to first 3 locations.
