Whitby Abbey

Set on a headland high over the town, Whitby Abbey is the perfect choice for a great value day trip in Yorkshire. It’s easy to see how Bram Stoker was inspired by its gothic splendour when writing Dracula. This is one of the most atmospheric visitor attractions on the Yorkshire coast.

Discover the long history of the Abbey and the daily life of the monks who once lived here in the unique interactive visitor centre with its dramatic digital reconstructions. Or listen to the audio tour as you wander around the ancient ruins and enjoy the stunning views.

For mystery and imagination, Whitby Abbey is one of the best family days out in Yorkshire. Check out there web site for further details and list on the events ran throughout the year.
