Whitby Abbey to be lit up again this half-term
See Bram Stoker’s inspiration in a new light as Whitby Abbey is bathed in dramatic illuminations this half-term. As you explore its gothic splendour, costumed characters will introduce the darker side of the past with tales of grave robbing and witch trials. You can also experience a live performance of Dracula to complete your visit. The abbey illumination is on from Wednesday to next Saturday, 6pm to 9.30pm. The event is part of Yorkshire Abbey Season, celebrating some of the county’s finest abbeys and their rich histories with a programme of special events across the north.
