Whitby town is located in the Scarborough District of North Yorkshire County in England, UK.
This coastal historic town is a famous tourist destination and a fishing port. York is located 47 miles from Whitby.
Whitby lies at the source of the River Esk. The town is spread across two steep sides of the tapered valley of this river.
According to the census of 2000, the population of the town was 13,740.
The city lies on the north-east side of Yorkshire and the Humber region of England. As a result, this town experiences a continental polar climate.
Due to the continental air mass, the summers may get hot, while the winters are cold.
The polar air masses make the overall climate cool. Hence, winters can be really harsh at times. This combination brings cold and dry air masses.
Tourists are advised to bring warm cloths while travelling to Whitby during winter.

Overall Guide : Whitby is an ideal holiday destination for people that like all traditional English fishing ports because it is surrounded and historical buildings. It's famous for Capt Cook the famous explorer who set sail from the port of his many expeditions... more and there is now a museum in his honour in the town and of course Brown Stoker who wrote Dracula is said to be inspired by the town and Whitby Abbey whilst writing's famous novel. There is plenty of accommodation and plenty of other fishing port nearby to visit within easy driving distance
