When the Russian schooner The Demeter ran aground in Whitby harbour in 1885, everyone on board was mysteriously dead. The lone survivor, a demonic black dog, bounded from the vessel and up the 199 steps to Whitby Abbey. The dog was a classic form known to be taken by vampires… And so Bram Stoker got the bright idea for Dracula, with which the abbey will now forever be connected. It’s no surprise, since the ruins of the abbey on this lonely windswept location are utterly atmospheric with views over the harbour and the Esk Valley to die for (sorry). But there’s more here - the museum and visitor centre is an excellent source of info on the Benedictine monks who once lived here, with cool talking heads to catch the eye of the kids.
