Cook in the North East

Since his death in 1779 Cook’s life and achievements have been recognised and commemorated across the globe. In a recent national poll Cook was voted one of the top twenty Britons. Particularly in the North East of England where Cook was born and grew up, communities have celebrated their links with the great explorer.

Cook is considered to have been Middlesbrough’s greatest son and his name is associated with streets, buildings, shopping centres and businesses. All over historic North Yorkshire and Cleveland, from Middlesbrough to Great Ayton; Redcar to Marske; and Staithes to Whitby; there are places with Cook connections to visit and explore. This area is known as Captain Cook Country and is promoted as a visitor destination by the Captain Cook Tourism Association and its partner organisations. Although most of the objects from Cook’s voyages and times are housed in the major national and regional institutions across the world, museums in North Yorkshire, Middlesbrough and Newcastle care for important Cook-related collections.
