Whitby, Great Britain is a beautiful coastal town with quaint ports, fish markets and lovely beaches as far as the eye can see. Here, you can have a delicious seafood feast, learn to ride a horse across the stunning coastline, or pick up some handcrafted jewelry. However, something about the mysterious old streets and the crumbling abbey and graveyard perched high up on a cliff in west Whitby give the seaside town a twist. Perhaps it was this landscape which inspired Bram Stoker, who apparently conceived Count Dracula while visiting Whitby. In turn, the dark tale has inspired travelers who come in groups dressed in Victorian-era garb to explore this atmospheric town in character, as well as organized Ghost Walks and festivals in tribute to the literary classic. Whether you’re heading to Whitby to have a relaxing getaway in a coastal resort town, or to delve into its history and quirks, you’re bound to have an unforgettable trip.
