About this deal

Gothic Elegance: The set's design captures the gothic elegance of Whitby Abbey, combining the mystique of Dracula's legend with the haunting beauty of the ruins. The famous Abbess of Streaneshalch, Saint Hild, converted to Christianity after the fall of the Roman Empire. In addition, he visited the public lending library on the Harbourside (now the Quayside fish and chip restaurant). For the character of Dracula, Stoker retained Irving’s aristocratic bearing and histrionic acting style, but he redrafted the play as a novel told in the form of letters, diaries, newspaper cuttings and entries in the ship’s log of the Demeter. Below the abbey stands the ancient parish church of St Mary, perched on East Cliff, which is reached by a climb of 199 steps.

If it hadn’t been such a sunny day and if I wasn’t being kept company by approximately two dozen Japanese tourists and their selfie sticks, I would have been rather freaked out. Scarborough is England’s oldest seaside resort and is only located around 30 minutes away from Whitby on the coastal road. But, a pirate boat ride through Whitby coast HAS to be done and it will give you the best view of where The Demeter landed on Whitby shores.Stoker latched on to Whitby after staying in the town in the summer of 1890 and used (sometimes in adapted form) a number of Whitby’s buildings and locations in his influential Gothic novel. Whitby’s connections to Dracula and the Goth scene add a dark and dangerous edge to this otherwise charming seaside destination, its presence being widely felt wherever you go.

If you’re in Whitby, you can use Dracula’s Whitby to help you find your way around all the places mentioned in the book.

With fantastic views over the coast, a fascinating museum and wide open grounds to roam, it’s a great value day out for everyone. Dracula has had as much of an influence on Whitby as the town had on Bram Stoker during that summer in 1890.
