Whitby

The coastal town of Whitby is one of North Yorkshire's must-sees. The romantic ruins of the abbey and the Church of St Mary, perched on the cliffs, inspired Bram Stoker's novel Dracula and fans of this gothic masterpiece flock here from around the world. Whitby is also famous for its beautiful jet jewellery made from the fossilised wood found in the cliffs here.
