At this stunning Whitby harbourside site is the 17th Century house which belonged to Cook's master, the ship owner Captain John Walker. The attic roofed with old ships timber where the young Cook and his fellow apprentices lodged, is still preserved. Whitby is where Captain Cook learnt his seaman's trade- where all his ship's were built!
