Take a walk into town and you will find the Dracula Experience paying homage to the famous terrifying love story of love and bloodlust.
You may not realise before you arrive in Whitby that one of the things most associated with the Town is Bram Stoker’s renowned novel ‘Dracula’.
This is because the novel was inspired whist Bram Stoker stayed in the Whitby and where he found inspiration for his book. In fact, it was Whitby Abbey and the 199 Steps on the West Cliff, surrounded by St Mary’s gothic church that inspired the writer to pen the story.
