Site manager Delphine Jasmin-Belisle said: “We love to welcome the Whitby community to the abbey and we decided to change our local day from early spring to a midsummer day, so visitors can really enjoy the best of everything on the day. We are very proud to care for this coastal gem and hope that Whitby people can really relax and enjoy the site as if it were their very own back garden...with views that aren’t too bad either!”

The usual prices will apply for visitors from outside the area: Adults: £7.60, Child (5-15 years) £4.60, Concession £6.80, family (2 adults, 3 children) £19.80.

The Abbey is open every day from 10am to 6pm throughout the summer months.

Performances will take place on Saturday and Sunday, July 22-23.

Tickets will be available on the day. Performances are at 11am, 1pm and 3pm and last for approximately one hour.

Then the following month a Magical Travelling Circus will be coming to the star attraction on Thursday, August 17 to Sunday, August 20.
