This is an impressive statue of Captain Cook as he looks over the harbour and out to sea. Location is excellent just next to the whale bones overlooking the whole of Whitby

Located near to the whalebone arch (one of the most iconic landmarks of Whitby), the nearby area offers great views on a nice day. A fine monument to explorer Captain Cook, who is proudly remembered in the north east. (I live in Middlesbrough where there is a Captain Cook Birthplace Museum, shopping area named after him, and in nearby Great Ayton there is the Captain Cook Schoolroom Museum and of course the large monument on the hill nearby in the Cleveland Hills.) There are some interesting information boards near to the monument. It is well worth the effort of climbing the steps to have a look around this area. We admired the views from the top of the bank, before walking through the arch and following the steps down into Whitby town and continuing along the Cleveland Way.

Visited the statue when looking at the whalebone arch. It was a very windy day so I didn't stop for too long, but a great vantage point to see the town.

Always love coming here when I am here in Whitby as it is great to see and a fine monument to Captain Cook, who was known for his discoveries such as Canada and Australia etc. Also was a skilled navigator, who learned his trade well. It stands at a excellent vantage point, standing watch over Whitby. Also gives a great opportunity for photos. Well worth visiting.
