Encircled by the wild North York Moors, edged by a spectacular coastline with the highest cliffs in England, this area has always been a world apart. Whitby's skyline is dominated by the ruins of St Hilda’s Abbey on Whitby's East Cliff. Spreading below, Whitby is a maze of alleyways and narrow streets that run down to the busy quayside. From the old town of Whitby, 199 steps lead up to the parish church of St. Mary, whose churchyard on Whitby's East Cliff gave Bram Stoker the inspiration to write his world famous book, Dracula.
