Staithes is world-famous as the place where Cook made his first contact with the sea, which started his incredible maritime career.

This treasure trove over two floors has a 1745 life-size street scene from Cook's time in Staithes
including a recreation of William Sanderson's shop, where Cook was working when he fell in love with the sea.

There is also a huge collection of exhibits from Cook's life, with over 200 books dating from 1773, 61 original Webber engravings from Cook's third voyage, letters, glassware, porcelain, medals, coins, a South Seas shilling, models of ships... and copies of Harrison's H4 and Kendall's K3 maritime timepieces. You really should seek out this fantastic visitor attraction
