Tourism began in Whitby during the Georgian period and this developed further upon the arrival of the railway in 1839. Its attraction as a tourist destination is enhanced by its proximity to the high ground of the North York Moors National Park, its Heritage Coastline and by its association with the famous horror novel Dracula. Jet and alum were mined locally.
Whitby Jet, which was mined by the Romans and Victorians, became fashionable during the 19th century.
