One of Britain's finest stretches of coast, with cliffs, fine bays and safe sandy beaches interspersed with attractive villages,Whitby has been a port for more than 1,000 years and today is still a seafarer's town.
The narrow streets and alleys climbing down to the quayside still bustle as they have done for centuries, and as folklore and tradition are very much part of the Whitby scene visitors soon find themselves involved.
Film and television producers have also discovered Whitbys charm. As well as the ever popularYorkshire television series Heartbeat,Warner brothers recently used Whitby as its main location for the film 'Possession' staring Gwyneth Poultrow.
From the towns centuries old streets, I 99 steps lead up to the parish Church of St Mary whose church yard inspired Bram Stoker to write his world famous novel Dracula.

Whitby Abbey is great because you can: See a place of saints and miracles Learn about this extraordinary headland Find out about the history and life at Whitby Abbey Visit our award winning Visitors' Centre Enjoy dramatic views of Whitby and the coastal landscape.
Set high on a headland, Whitby Abbey's gaunt and moving remains have associations as diverse as Victorian jewellery, whaling and Count Dracula. Those who choose to approach the Abbey â€“ up the 199 steps from Whitby town â€“ know the meaning of dedication!
Over the centuries the headland has been an inspiration to all sorts of people, for very different reasons. Anglo Saxon saints and kings are buried on it, medieval monks built their abbey here, the flamboyant Cholmley family came to own it, and two Victorians made it famous world wide. Bram Stoker with his Dracula, and Frank Meadow Sutcliffe with countless black and white photographs.
That's why the abbey ruin isn't the only remarkable feature in this landscape. In fact, there are three others. The parish church of Saint Mary's, the remains of the Cholmley house within the boundaries of the former abbey, and the ground beneath your feet. Even today, the headland continues to offer up its secrets to historians and archaeologists
