Author of Dracula, Bram Stoker, was so inspired by the Gothic architecture of Whitby Abbey, that he set key passages of his horror classic in this sleepy, picturesque fishing village.
As the story goes, Russian ship, ñThe Demeterî runs aground at Whitby during a fierce storm. The crew is missing and its only cargo is a mysterious shipment of damp Transylvanian earth. Ashore, Dracula appears like an apparition and manifests himself into a Black dog, slipping away into the night.
Established in 657AD, Whitby Abbey still cuts an imposing figure on the clifftops overlooking Whitby. There is palpable sense of history here and a captivating Gothic atmosphere in the airƒ.
