We had sampled the Yorkshire Dales so felt it only right and proper to give the York Moors a bash. We drove across the rather impressive Yorkshire Moors and dropped down into Whitby.
We started our whistle-stop tour of Whitby at the rather beautiful ruins of Whitby Abbey, looming over the little harbour town below and the inspiration behind Bram Stoker’s Dracula – which was clearly evident by the number of ‘vampire’ based shops and tourist attractions to be found in the town. The Abbey ruins looked splendid in the sun but after a while we left and descended the 199 steps down to the town and harbour below.
Whitby seemed to be a busy but pretty little seaside town with all the classic summer attractions including a pier and donkey rides on the impressively large beach and most importantly, very fine fish and chips.
