Booking online

We now offer an online booking service for people who like to plan their visit in advance. This service is optional.  You can still pay on arrival at our reception desk.



Winter months (Nov – Feb):

  • Pre-booked Groups 10+, Schools and Adults (normal prices). Pre-arranged private individual visits, up to 9 people (£8.50 per person, child £3.50)*

* These are in effect private visits. Our Operations Manager will show you the main collection. These visits will particularly suit visitors from overseas who are in Whitby in the winter and unlikely to be able to return.

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