I don't know about reefs but there are some good wrecks out of Whitby. As said Ron Young's books are good. I use wrecksite.eu with a £26 ish annual subscription you get all the admiralty charts/marks.
Whitby has really good marina/launching facilities and you can launch +/- 4 hours or so at the marina slip. We quite often do a weekend diving there and you can leave you RIB on the marina pontoon overnight.
Diving at Whitby can be a little disappointing at times. You really need a good week or more of low wind to maintain the visibility. And you also need a week or so of no heavy rain as the rive can turn the sea off Whitby, a dark chocolate colour.
We did a weekend diving there about 2 weeks ago and had 10 metre viz, which I think is good for Whitby.
And try Arbutt's for a proper fishermans breakfast.
