The town has been immortalised is Bram Stoker's Dracula - it is where Dracula arrived in Britain in the author's famous novel.
You can travel to Whitby by train on the famous North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR). This wonderful, private heritage railway operates between Pickering and Whitby, running several services a day between the town towns and stopping en route at a number of smaller, village stations including Grosmont and Levisham. In fact, when you travel to Whitby by train on the NYMR, you will pass through 'Heartbeat country' - the village of Goathland was called 'Aidensfield' when it featured in the long-running ITV drama.
