Our Tours

Whitby & Whitby Abbey

This tour tells the story of the town and abbey from Saxon England until the German bombardment during the First World War.


The story of Whitby Abbey will be brought to life in such a way that although you won't see the Abbey for much of your walk, you'll gain an appreciation of its historical importance. Admission to Whitby Abbey is not included with this tour.

Voyages of Discovery

Voyages of Discovery will take you across the seven seas as you learn about the famous voyages of Captain Cook.


Come to understand how sheer coincidence paired Whitby-built ships and a local Captain in order to explore some of the most exotic places on earth. We want you to feel the buzz of exploration from the Great Barrier Reef to the North-West Passage.

Art & Literature

Our Art & Literature tour focuses on four figures associated with Whitby: the poet Caedmon, photographer Frank Meadow Sutcliffe, artist George Weatherill and author Bram Stoker.


Your guide will have reproductions of Sutcliffe and Weatherill's works for you to view on location and you'll be told about how Whitby inspired Stoker's novel Dracula.
