Whitby is certainly a town that offers something a little different to your ‘typical’ coastal resort and will no doubt surprise you when you visit.
Famous for its connections to Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Whitby has always embraced its association with Gothic culture which is reflected in the town’s quirky streets, shops and Abbey ruins, and of course the annual celebration of the culture - The Whitby Goth Weekend.
