Whitby

tour of Yorkshire would not be complete without a visit to the seaside town of Whitby, which lies on the North Yorkshire coastline and is famous as the home town of Captain James Cook. You can visit Whitby by train on a rail vacation with Great Rail Journeys, as part of a tour of Yorkshire and Northumberland. 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 Railroad (NYMR). This wonderful, private heritage railroad 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.

On a rail vacation to Whitby you can visit the North Yorkshire seaside town's beautiful cliff-top abbey, which stands proudly above the beach and overlooks the harbor. From the harbor there are 199 steps to reach the Abbey.

While on a rail vacation to Whitby you could enjoy a ghost walk through the ancient haunted streets of the town. It is reported that Whitby's Old Town can be a strange, creepy place once darkness has fallen, with plenty of unnerving incidents having taken place there. If you prefer vampires to ghosts, you could pass the free time on your rail vacation to Whitby with a "Dracula experience", which includes a walk through a tunnel that has been adapted to be like Dracula's castle.

Other possible activities during a rail vacation to Whitby include a visit to the Captain Cook Museum and a meal of fish and chips at the world-famous Magpie Café.
