Description

Discover the history of Whitby, Robin Hood’s Bay and Staithes on the North Yorkshire Coast through interesting and themed walks, illustrated with maps, pictures and colourful stories.

From the legend of Dracula and the ruinous abbey in Whitby, to the tales of Captain Cook in Staithes and smuggling in Robin Hood’s Bay, this book is the perfect guide to your stay on the North Yorkshire Coast.

In Whitby you’ll find ten walks which take you through the streets and ancient buildings, covering the churches and Abbey, Captain Cook, Gothic history and the legend of Dracula, its literary history and a famous pubs walk among others.

In Robin Hood’s Bay you’ll discover lifeboats, beaches, smugglers and even Barbara Hepworth. In Staithes you’ll once again come across Captain Cook, along with the history of its fisherfolk, harbour and the 19th century artists’ colony which was attracted here.

There are also walks to other villages, like Sandsend, Runswick Bay, Port Mulgrave and Hinderwell, which each have their own unique landscapes and histories to discover.
