Imagine a peaceful seaside town in the north of England. What are you imagining?
Whitby may surprise you... and its Goth weekend will surprise you even more! Why do so many people come to Whitby in fantastic, Gothic clothes, like a Victorian ghost story?
Visit Whitby, look up above the town and see the spooky ruins of Whitby Abbey and you might guess why. Whitby Abbey inspired Bram Stoker’s famous vampire novel ‘Dracula’.
Goths are people who enjoy listening to gothic rock music and dressing in Gothic clothes, and you’ll see lots of fantastic outfits during this weekend.
However, Whitby is also a scenic, seaside destination. You can also see traditional cobbled streets and pretty, colourful fishing boats in this lovely coastal town.
Where will you eat your fish and chips on your Whitby day trip?
