Sadly, due to fire damage at The Magpie Cafe (the physical home
of The Whitby Web Cam) our camera is currently out of action.

You can still view historical images and videos however.

We hope to have the camera back up and running very soon and
apologise for any inconvenience in the meantime.

"Whitby Web Cam" was launched live onto the web on May 12th 2008. It has arisen from a collaboration between two of Whitby's best known websites:

The Whitby Catch started just a few years ago, but is already proving to be a great success - providing whitby seafood directly, and via its online shop. Fresh seafood can be delivered anywhere in the UK.

Whitby Online has been live on the web for almost 10 years now - it's a locally created and maintained site, supported by local businesses, and offering a vast array of Whitby information to anyone who visits. Whitby Online features a Whitby photo gallery, Whitby forum, Whitby events calendar, Whitby business directory and much much more.
