HM Bark En­deav­our, a full-scale replica of Cap­tain James Cook’s fa­mous ship, has just ar­rived in Whitby, where it has opened as a per­ma­nent vis­i­tor at­trac­tion. In­no­va­tive graphic de­sign, light­ing and in­ter­ac­tive fea­tures trans­port vis­i­tors back in time to life aboard the 18th-cen­tury ship and all the hard­ships en­dured by Cook’s crew, from scurvy to sheer bore­dom. The Ex­pe­ri­ence cov­ers the ex­pe­di­tion’s sci­en­tific dis­cov­er­ies. The open­ing co­in­cides with the 250th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions (Cook250 Fes­ti­val) of Cap­tain Cook’s first ex­pe­di­tion to the Pa­cific in the orig­i­nal En­deav­our, which was built in Whitby in 1764. » hm­bark­endeav­our.co.uk
