A picturesque English seaside town with a creepy and supernatural history, the charming town of Whitby is famous for many things. The River Esk essentially divides the town into two parts -- the east cliff filled with ramshackle 18th-century fisherman’s cottages, and the west cliff being home to a Victorian residential area. Travelling to Whitby is somewhat like traveling back in time.
