Whitby is a fishing port at the mouth of the River Esk on the east coast of England in the county of North Yorkshire. Full of history and interest - the fishing port emerged during the Middle Ages and developed important herring and whaling fleets, and was where Captain Cook (discovered Australia) learned seamanship. Tourism started in Whitby in Georgian times and developed with the coming of the railway in 1839. On the windy cliff above the town are the ruins of Whitby Abbey where Caedmon, the earliest English poet, lived. Parts of Bram Stokers novel Dracula are set around the town and Abbey.
