This land of contrasts stretches from the historic port of Whitby, with its ancient clifftop abbey, north along miles of unspoiled rugged coastline to the seaside resorts of Saltburn and Redcar and onto the Tees River and Cook’s birthplace at Marton in Middlesbrough.

Inland across the dramatic North York Moors Captain Cook Country takes in quiet market towns and peaceful villages leading back to Whitby along the valley of the River Esk.

Follow in the footsteps of the young James Cook and take in the visual splendour of the beautiful and often breathtaking North Yorkshire and Cleveland coast and countryside along the Cook Country Tour.
