Whitby Vacation Rentals

Whitby Travel Guide

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.

Things to Do in Whitby

It is Whitby where Bram Stoker wrote his infamous Dracula novel in the 18th century. Many scenes from Dracula are set in Whitby and so one of the best things to do is explore the sights that feature in the story. Eerie evening tours take travelers on modern day vampire hunts. Other rewarding things to do in Whitby include the crumbling ruins of Whitby Abbey, the Captain Cook Memorial Museum and Whitby Sands -- a charming English beach).
