Чем вы займетесь

Whitby history goes back more than 2,000 years, though there are also many strange stories and legends to tell about. Our tour will begin on the West Cliff at the Whalebone Arch, and I'll explain about the town's history of whaling. Then at Captain James Cook's statue, I'll tell of Whitby ship building and Cook's voyages of exploration. Along the piers and extensions I'll tell about our maritime and fishing history, followed by a visit to the Lifeboat Museum. We will then cross Whitby's swing bridge to Church Street, the oldest in town, going back to the 700's AD. Whitby is famous for its yards, each with different histories to explore. We will see the "Dinosaur Coast", with its abundance of prehistoric fossils, from ammonites to large sea creatures such as the Ichthyosaurus in the Whitby Museum. It is also the main source of Jet, the black gemstone formed from 180 million year old Monkey Puzzle trees. We'll walk along Tate Hill sands, where Bram Stoker wrote that Dracula came ashore in the form of a big hound. Walking up the 199 steps on the East Cliff we'll see the panoramic view and explore the 11th Century Church of St. Mary's and the Abbey headland where St Hilda hosted the famous synod of Whitby in 664 AD. There will be the option of a locally brewed beer or coffee, tea and cake in The Whitby Brewery on the the Abbey Plain to relax and chat about the experience.

Edwin

I was born in Whitby with family roots back to 1600. I have traveled widely and worked in various countries teaching English at all levels, from infants, businesses, Universities, I have always returned to my home town. For the last 17 years I have worked as a guide on the Whitby Town Tour Bus. This requires me to be very knowledgeable about the town since passengers can stay on board all day so I have to constantly vary the information on Whitby's history, architecture, culture, plus I have to be spontaneous and add humour to ensure people are entertained as well as informed. I have given tours to the general pubic, school parties, and evening tours for HF holidays. The tours require interaction with my guests. I believe I can share my knowledge and love of the town with small groups on walking tours to discoverer Whitby in a unique way.
