  • Really lovley little place, had a great chat with Imogen who runs the shop about the heritage of whitby jet and had a look at the last victorian jet workshop in whitby. It is compact but informative!
  • The Victorian jet workshop at the Whitby Jet Heritage Centre was a fascinating insight into world of Victorian craftsmanship. We were given an excellent informal talk on the old workshop from the very knowledgeable assistant. The old workshop was discovered in an old attic and expertly recreated in the heritage centre. The family run business still produces fine Jet jewellery for sale in the shop.
  • Very informative but small
  • Very good history of whitby jet jewellery .good heritage centre & shop

Where to stay in Whitby

The majority of the town's lodging is near the small harbor at the town center. Consider a guest room in one of the historical buildings that line the water or on one of the narrow streets that branch off from the boardwalk. For views of the picturesque town and the cathedral, consider lodging inland and up the hill. Ask about themed rooms designed for the Whitby Gothic Weekend.
