Welcome to the Dolphin Hotel Whitby
Fish and chips and ice cream; history and culture; vampires and Goths: it’s all on offer at Whitby, one of the North East coast’s best-loved seaside towns.
With Blue Flag beaches and many attractions, including the world-famous steam North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Whitby is the perfect base for a family holiday. But it doesn’t end there. Whitby wallows in history, including fishing, the jet industry (did you know that it’s still the best place in the world to find the gleaming black gemstone so beloved by the Victorians?), Captain Cook (who was born nearby, and whose famous ship the Endeavour was Whitby-built) and whaling. And its literary connections – Bram Stoker’s famous Dracula features the town, with the vampire first coming ashore here from Transylvania in the guise of a black dog – have inspired the world famous Goth Festival, which now takes place twice a year, in the spring and around Hallowe’en.
The Dolphin Hotel offers the best harbour views in town from its accommodation. Being Located in the center of town we have the best access to all the local tourist attractions such as the Whitby Abbey, Dracula experience, Captain Cook Museum and much more, great traditional pub as well as a Hotel, we can offer onsite entertainment throughout the week, with live music on Tuesdays and weekends.
