About this deal

Staithes is a hidden gem on the Yorkshire coast and is on the Captain Cook trail if you’re following in his maritime footsteps. It easily connects you with many towns and cities and you can take in some stunning views along the way! The famous Abbess of Streaneshalch, Saint Hild, converted to Christianity after the fall of the Roman Empire. The Captain Cook Experience that makes berth in Whitby harbour is by far the best pirate ship you can ride in Whitby. Flat 7 of the crescent is also mentioned as the residence of Dracula’s solicitor, “Samuel F Billington”.

As we reach the Duke of York pub, to our left you will see the foot of the 199 steps – The time and distance seemed endless, and my knees trembled and my breath came laboured as I toiled up the endless steps to the Abbey. Ian also includes in the book a chapter on Whitby’s other ghosts and legends, quite appropriately as they all add to the mystery and atmosphere in the town. Whitby holds a particular place in Ian’s heart, as the home town of his mother, he regularly visited there and each trip became a pilgrimage taking in the sights and locations that featured within the story. This book will inspire not only fans of Bram stoker's literary creation, but also visitors and residents alike. The log charts the gradual disappearance of the entire crew during the journey to Whitby, until only the captain is left, tied to the wheel, as the ship runs aground below East Cliff on 8 August – the date that marked Stoker’s discovery of the name ‘Dracula’ in Whitby library.

August 1890 marks the discovery of this name, the same date Dracula’s fictional ship runs aground in Whitby. We took our 4 year old daughter and she would have happily went round and round a few times if we had more time. I must have gone fast, and yet it seemed to me as if my feet were weighted with lead…When I got almost to the top I could see the seat and the white figure… There was undoubtedly something, long and black, bending over the half-reclining white figure.

We are a bit older, so have seen many a vampire film, Hammer House of Horrors was a regular Friday night experience when we were younger! Coffin chocolates, vampire teeth, blood bags of syrup, count Dracula lollies, and black and red Dracula rock are just to name a few. It is a true sight to behold, a sea of black, red and purple as men and women transform into their gothic selves to embrace this world-renowned festival.There are little bits of Whitby to be found throughout Stoker’s novel, including, of course, our famous 199 steps to the abbey.

Don’t go in expecting this to last hours it is a walk around attraction but it has good theming and a few jump scares. Reading the book in this way it acts a great tourist guide, and a perfect way to discover parts of the town that perhaps get overlooked on the normal tourist paths. Our home town has been our greatest source of inspiration in creating Whitby Gin, providing the flavours and philosophy which make our gin so distinctive. com, the Sell on Etsy app, and the Etsy app, as well as the electricity that powers Etsy’s global offices and employees working remotely from home in the US. I now believe this item is out of print and may not be reprinted, so its unlikely this seller has any of tese books to sell, even though it is still listed as being available.Written by Bram Stoker, the novel Dracula was published in 1897 and tells the story about a vampire attempting to move to England. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. If you have more information on Dracula and the connections to Whitby, please let us know in the comments. Ian Thompson has had a lifelong interest in horror films and scary stories, and Dracula is a story that has fascinated him. Once inside, you’ll see the novel brought to life as you walk through different scenes and watch them unfold around you.

Embrace the gothic allure of Whitby and the mysteries of Dracula with our "Dracula's Whitby Abbey Writing Set. There are descriptor plaques (well bits of poorly laminated paper), spurioulsy placed around explaining what some of them are, you'll definitely need your phone for them! Trains to Whitby: Fortunately, Whitby has its own train station, so you can take a Northern Rail service and it will drop you right in the centre of town. I was struck by the amount of headstones that read ‘in memory of’ rather than ‘here lies…’ The list of people remembered here who were lost at sea must be sizeable.

I don't like intense surprises or jumpscares and I wouldn't have liked it if they had suddenly lunged forward at us. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
