The cobbled streets and gothic remains of Whitby Abbey inspired Bram Stoker to set the classic tale of Dracula in this town. Today visitors can tread the same steps as the key characters from the story such as the famous 199 steps up to East Cliff and St Marys Church, themed tours include The Dracula Experience and Ghost Walks. This area is also well known for producing its black jet with a heritage centre and local designers in the town selling carved jewellery which is ideal for a gift or momento.

There are plenty of museums to choose from to take in the fascinating history of this port and its seafaring days. These include the RNLI museum, Museum of Victorian Science and the Captain Cook Museum. There is also a monument of the great explorer and a large Whale Bone Arch.

The Moor to Sea Cycle Network connects with many nearby towns making this an ideal route to use for day trips to Scarborough or Dalby Forest. A short drive from the town is Robin Hood’s Bay, a pretty fishing village with museum and old coastguard station open to visitors. The Cleveland Way is a footpath which combines both the coastline and moorland, also Pannett Park is lovely family friendly gardens with the art gallery and town museum nearby.


By far the largest county in the UK, Yorkshire is extremely popular for its countryside retreats as well as the bright lights of some busy cities like Harrogate, Sheffield and Leeds. Scarborough is the oldest seaside resort in Britain.

Whitby has been voted the country's best beach and has a beautiful harbour and a Dracula museum to boot (the town is featured in the Bram Stoker vampire story of the same name, as well as some of its many movie adaptations).

Yorkshire has always had a great and not always friendly rivalry with the neighbouring county of Lancashire. Some of the bloodiest battles in English history took place in these shires, as the opposing Plantagenet houses of York and Lancaster fought a bitter civil conflict commonly known as the Wars of the Roses. Nowadays the competition takes place mostly on the cricket pitch.

The two counties are among the most famous teams in this oh so important English summer game. Yorkshire has the nickname “God's own county”, a reference to the beauty of its countryside, with several National Parks formed to protect its moors and dales and rugged coastline. Cliffs of limestone, chalk and jet guard its coast against the sea. Because of its considerable size, Yorkshire is often regarded as three distinct administrative areas called “ridings” (North, West and East Riding), a Scandinavian concept thought to derive from the Viking occupation in the first century AD.
