Whitby Steampunk Weekend 2024: All the best photos of fantastic costumes on the Yorkshire coast

Hundreds of weird and wonderful costumes could be seen as the Whitby Steampunk Weekend got underway.

The event, held at Whitby Pavilion, is now one of the largest steampunk gatherings in the UK, and has a reputation for its friendly atmosphere.

Trade stands and vendors selling steampunk paraphernalia were located inside the Pavilion, but many of those attending took the opportunity to promenade around the town in their Victoriana-inspired outfits.

Yorkshire Post photographer James Hardisty captured the fun.
