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.
Facilities DetailsThe car park, toilets, and cafe are not run by English Heritage. Dogs are welcome but must remain on the lead. Wheelchairs are available for hire, and there is a wheelchair route with ramps for accessing the ruins, but note there are no handrails.
