Booking online

We offer an online booking service for people planning their visit in advance. This service is optional.  You can still pay on arrival, most people do.

Winter months (Nov – Feb):

Pre-booked Groups 10+ and Schools (normal prices).

Pre-arranged private individual visits, up to 9 people (£8.50 per person, child £3.50). Our Guides will show you the main collection. This particularly suits visitors from overseas who are in Whitby in the winter and unlikely to return.

Note: November to mid-February there is no special exhibition in the Attic and some refurbishment may be in progress.
