century Whitby Abbey. This traditional maritime town with its old
cobbled streets, picturesque houses and sandy blue flag beaches is a
great place for a holiday or a short break. Whitby has many diverse
attractions which include: Captain Cook Memorial Museum, Victorian
Jet Works, Dracula Experience, Pannett Park and the Whitby Museum,
and only a short drive away Heartbeat Country.
