About us

Exhibition: 'Whitby in the Time of Cook, the Making of a Great Seaman'
2018 marks the 250th anniversary of the start of Captain Cook's first voyage to the Pacific in 1768. As he weighed anchor at Plymouth, what did he take from Whitby?

The exhibition will highlight the special character and growing prosperity of the town. It will examine the unique features which made Whitby one of the major ship-building centres in Britain, and a key centre for training young men for the sea.
