Whitby Abbey

High up on a hill, above the small but vibrant seaside town of Whitby, standa the glorious ruins of a Gothic abbey. Take The 199 Steps up to the top of the hill, pay about £7 and you’re wandering under the epic arches of what was once clearly a magnificent piece of architecture.  


I ignored the free audio tour, and opted to just wander about in awe. I had no interest in who lived in the posh house next door or any sort of political figure that was related. The abbey’s ruins speak for themselves. 


Goths, history nerds and architecture buffs alike will love Whitby Abbey.
