Whitby has long had a reputation among mariners as a safe harbour and the only real refuge between the Humber and the Tyne. By the 18th century the port was substantial. There was a ropery, several large ship-building yards and many smaller ones, and even a dry-dock in operation.The town retains its unspoilt atmosphere and is popular with holidaymakers, not only for the spectacular sandy beaches, but also the ancient monuments and museums of the town.
