Visit the Grade 1 Listed house where the young James Cook came to serve his seaman’s apprenticeship. 

 

This handsome 17th century house on Whitby harbour belonged to Cook’s master, the Quaker shipowner, John Walker. 

It was here in the attic that the family lodged their apprentices when not at sea serving the London coal trade.
