Whitby’s Historic East Side: An audio tour uncovering the east side’s tales

North Yorkshire Trip Overview

Whitby’s historic East Side has a close affinity with the sea and this self guided audio tour provides an ideal introduction to local pastimes like fishing and rowing as well as the shipwrecks along our shore. You’ll never look at the East Side in quite the same way again.

You’ll hear about:

• How Whitby might have inspired one of Charles Dickens’ most well-known characters
