Whitby Railway Station

The small, but splendid, front entrance of the original LNER (NER) Whitby railway station, the terminous of the wonderful scenic train journey from Middlesbrough on Teesside through the Esk Valley as the line follows the River Esk for nearly 20 miles.

The small, but splendid, front entrance of the original LNER (NER) Whitby railway station. It isn't quite as grand as York station or Kings Cross station in London Shown below!, but it is of similar age and stone, with architectural similarities, originating from the North Easter Railway Company. More importantly, it is the terminous of the wonderful scenic train journey from Middlesbrough on Teesside, through the Esk Valley of the North Yorkshire Moors and the line follows the River Esk for nearly 20 miles on its approach to Whitby.

Haggersgate House

Haggersgate House is an early Georgian Town House built for the Walker Yeoman family. They were master mariners and ship-owners involved in whaling and merchant shipping all over the world when Whitby was the 7th most important ship owning town in England. The house was bought from the family in 1892 for use as a Mission to Seamen. In 1989 its charitable status was changed and it is now known as the Whitby Mission and Seafarers' Trust and serves the wider community in the Parish of Whitby.

The Museum houses all sorts of things from the history of Whitby and surrounding area from prehistoric times to the great days of Whitby port in the 19th century. It also has some splendid Jurassic fossils and a reproduction of the prehistoric carved stone found after the fire on Fylingdales Moor. The art gallery has some excellent pictures by local artists from the 19th century who painted the coast and life in the fishing villages.
