Staithes Village - Out & About

Staithes is a charming picturesque fishing village, which has remained unspoilt by time. Its cobbled streets, narrow alleyways, pantile roofed houses and fishing cobles moored in the beck, attract artists from far and wide.
 
An important artist's colony, The Staithes Group of Artists, began to form in the village, including the whole Parish of Hinderwell cum Roxby, from the early 1880s. Many of the artists trained in Paris and Antwerp at the height of the Impressionist movement, bringing to Staithes the use of blunt-ended brushes, plein air painting, an obsession with light and atmosphere and their own interest in social realist subjects. They were at the forefront of British Impressionist painting at the turn of the last century and their work can be seen in major public collections, including a permanent exhibition at The Pannett Art Gallery in Whitby.
Captain Cook, the famous 18th century explorer came to live in Staithes when he was sixteen, as a shop apprentice and it was here, listening to the tales of local fishermen, that his fascination for the sea began.

 

The Captain Cook and Staithes Heritage Centre on the high street, contains treasures from his entire life.


There is a regular bus service through this village, Arriva bus number 5.
