Whitby is a seaside town, port and civil parish in the Borough of Scarborough and English county of North Yorkshire. It is located within the historic boundaries of the North Riding of Yorkshire. Situated on the east coast of Yorkshire at the mouth of the River Esk, Whitby has an established maritime, mineral and tourist heritage. Its East Cliff is home to the ruins of Whitby Abbey, where Cædmon, the earliest recognised English poet, lived. The fishing port developed during the Middle Ages, supporting important herring and whaling fleets, and was (along with the nearby fishing village of Staithes) where Captain Cook learned seamanship.

A virtual visit to Dr Frankensteins laboratory with Geissler Tubes, Bouquet Tubes, Railway Tubes, Jacob's Ladder, telegraph system, early x-ray tubes and many more crackling spark, electric flame laden demonstrations. Showing the education of the young Victorians, using many of the static accessories and rare artefacts, as used by them. We hope your visit here will prove interesting, stimulating and will give an insight into this largely extinct branch of science.
What an amazing and unique experience. The museum is run by a lovely couple an consists of 2 hours of demonstrations with explanation and refreshments at the halfway point. The room is small and can fit 4 visitors only. Tony is so enthusiastic and the museum is his lifes work, an entertaining and unique experience!

Striving to preserve an Edwardian atmosphere, this museum houses a variety of general collections.
This is an absolutely fabulous museum. A must for anyone visiting Whitby. So quirky and fun and informative. From a mummified hand (a burglar’s lucky charm) to a cannon from the battle of Trafalgar, there is something for everyone. We ranged in age from 75 to 15 and everyone was happy. Lovely staff too.

Stopped off at the church by chance on way to the abbey and we’re glad we did as it was a most interesting place which should not be missed. The enclosed pews of various shapes and sizes and status fill the ground floor and balcony which overlook a three tier pulpit. Most unusual and fascinating. Some of the upstairs pews have external timber clad stairs adding to it’s uniqueness. Finally the surrounding graveyard offers fine views of the harbour.

I love kippers. I have always considered the smaller Manx kippers to be the pinnacle of salty herring juiciness. However, in terms of absolute flavour these come very, very close. They are strongly smoked but not too salty with a lingering sweetness that might be inherent too the fish or the brining process. Either way they are superb. If you're there while the smoking is being carried out the smell of the oak smoke I'd sublime. If you get to see inside the smoke house you can see the years of tar coating the insides of the kilns. Definitely an experience.
