All of us at The Yorkshire Trading Company feel privileged to be a part of this beautiful town. We strive to give the best service and value possible to residents and visitors alike. Be sure to pop in and say hello!”
You can find us in the centre of Whitby, opposite the Visitors Centre and across from the Co-op, right on the harbour in Whitby. We are a dog-friendly store, so bring your furry friends along!
We're an Aladdin’s Cave of goodies, from plastic storage, gardening tools, toys and haberdashery to the exclusive Rydale equestrian clothing range.

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
Janice over at Yorkshire Trading Co Selby was recently nominated to take on the Ice Bucket Challenge for a charitable cause. Having completed it, she nominated us to step up to the challenge. We responded with this selfless act.
What We Love About Whitby:
Whitby is steeped in history. The East Side boasts narrow winding streets and quaint fishermen’s cottages. The West Side, although a little more modern, is scattered with beautiful buildings and a magical atmosphere. Watching over us all is our famous Abbey and St Mary’s Church.
Although the harbour is better known as a holiday resort, Whitby has a long history of industry. By the 18th century Whitby was the 6th largest port in Britain and the centre of shipbuilding. Until only 20 years ago Whitby was primarily a fishing port.
This small fishing town captures the heart of all who visit. Between the adventures of Captain Cooke, a visit to Pannet Park Art Gallery or Whitby Museum, there's something here to charm everyone.
Then of course there is Bram Stokers Dracula – the essence of which is captured in Whitby with the three most powerful chapters being set here, putting Whitby in the minds of millions of people around the world.
Many visitors can’t keep away; they return year after year for Goth events, scooter and sixties weekends or just to enjoy our August Regatta. This quirky seaside town is jam packed with events and activities all year round!
