About this trip

This new Day Trip from York provides the opportunity to explore Whitby and the North York Moors, following in the footsteps of Captain Cook to commemorate the 250th anniversary of his first Voyage of Discovery.

You will then have three hours free time in Whitby, where Captain Cook trained in the merchant navy, with options to visit Whitby’s newest attraction, The Endeavour Experience (one of only two full size replicas of the HM Bark Endeavour in existence), The Captain Cook Memorial Museum, take a short trip out to sea on the Bark Endeavour scale replica of Cook’s famous vessel, climb the 199 steps to view Whitby Abbey or just explore the seaside town and experience Fish & Chips from the famous Magpie Café – the choice is yours!
