As a post-birthday treat my Mum and her boyfriend took me on a day trip to Whitby, North Yorkshire.
I haven’t been in years, but it is a picturesque seaside town.
There are the famous 199 steps up to the church and well known abbey.
The abbey is famous because of Bram Stoker’s Dracula – it was a key location for the classic gothic novel.
Although Whitby is a prime location for its gothic themes, it is also a great example of a British seaside town – fish and chips, cute shops, sweets, arcades, cottages and amazing views.
