A visit to the historical Whitby Abbey ruins located in the seaside town of Whitby in North Yorkshire. The ruins are perched high on the cliff and it is easy to see why the haunting remains of this 7th century monastery was inspiration for Bram Stoker’s gothic tale ‘Dracula’.
Whitby is full of English heritage and picturesque landscapes and throughout the years many ordinary visitors, writers and artists were moved by the fantastic atmosphere of the collapsed structure.
Throughout the years the ruins have been shaped by constant erosion caused by the strong winds and rain. Locals used the stones for building their houses and today the roofless and ruined structure stands proudly as a shell above the town.
