Whitby Abbey

Whitby Abbey

Whitby Abbey dramatically stands on a hill overlooking Whitby in North Yorkshire. Despite being a 1500-year-old abbey, these ruins inspired the author of 'Dracula', Bram Stoker. Fortunately, if you visit today, there are no vampires. In fact, visitors have voted Whitby Abbey as one of the top ten English Heritage family attractions.
