Captain Cook Festival named in Top 10 UK Events for July 2018 by TripAdvisor


When: 6-8 July 2018

The 250th anniversary of the momentous first voyage of one of the world’s greatest explorers will be celebrated in Whitby this year. To mark Cook’s first voyage, there’ll be a packed programme of events to entertain and educate visitors of all ages. Two tall ships will take pride of place in Whitby’s historic harbour and entry is free. Step back in time and climb aboard ‘Atyla’, the Spanish hand-built tall ship, to experience life at sea. Find out more about the Battle of Trafalgar on the replica warship topsail schooner, HMS Pickle. Or board the Bark Endeavour Whitby, an authentic replica of Cook’s HMS Bark Endeavour. Plus, Endeavour Wharf will be home to a live cooking theatre where local chefs will bring history to life, giving an 18th-century twist to modern cuisine using food and produce that would have been eaten on board.
