Captain Cook Memorial Museum

Grape Lane Whitby YO22 4BA

Although he wasn't born here, Whitby claims England's greatest explorer, Captain James Cook, as its own, and in the 18th century ship-owners' house where the young Cook served his apprenticeship you can trace his progress – from the attic where he once slept to the glorious round-the-world voyages that made his name, by way of model ships and Maori tattoos. Grape Lane, incidentally, was the earthier ‘Grope’ Lane in Cook's day – it's a lot more genteel nowadays.
