See town’s most famous landmark in a different light.

Whitby Abbey will be illuminated in a variety of colours this week ahead of the return of Whitby Goth Weekend.

Light will be cast on a dark history as visitors to the English Heritage site explore the gothic splendour of the place that provided the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

Costumed characters will give presentations on grave robbing and witch trials during the illuminations, which run from today (Wednesday) until Saturday, between 6pm and 8.30pm.
