There are lots of houses on the market in Whitby, the coastal town that inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula, just a short walk from the famous beach.

The North Yorkshire Coast town is a maritime, mineral and tourist attraction and the fishing port was introduced during the Middle Ages when it supported important herring and whaling fleets. The port was also the location where Captain James Cook learned seamanship and incidentally where his vessel to explore the southern ocean, The Endeavour, was built.

Visitors from across the country and all over the world travel to Whitby for its close proximity to the North York Moors National Park, its heritage coastline and association with the gothic horror novel Dracula. The town’s maritime heritage landmark is also commemorated by its link with William Scoresby, a 19th century whaler, arctic explorer and scientist.
