You can catch the Steam Driven Bus ' Elizabeth' just outside the RNLI Museum at this point , and take a steam driven tour of the Town.

The Bus is a 1931 DG6P Sentinel steam-powered wagon, converted into a 30-seat bus which operates on public streets for up to 280 days a year. The vehicle has two gears, six wheels and pneumatic tyres!

RNLI Musuem, Whitby. Pier Road, Whitby

Built in 1895, this double boathouse was used by the RNLI until 1957 when it was re-established as a museum.

The museum has grown to contain an abundance of lifeboat material including models, paintings, medals, photographs, lifeboat kit and items from famous rescues. Personal tales of individual RNLI crew and survivors are told through individual accounts from the archives and touching mementos from the wrecked and the rescued.

Admission to the RNLI Museum is free.

Opening times: Easter-October: Daily 10am-5pm

November-December: Daily 11am-4pm (subject to weather)
