Captain Cook Monument

East Terrace Crescent Whitby YO21 3HA

For a view that Captain Cook himself might recognise, head up the steps on the west side of the harbour to reach the monument to the famous explorer and national hero. The compact old town of Whitby lies huddled across the harbour, while a few steps away stands a lofty whalebone arch – a reminder of a time when Whitby was one of the world's great whaling towns.
