High on a cliff above the seaside town of Whitby are the gaunt remains of Whitby Abbey. Founded in 657 by St Hilda, Whitby Abbey has over the years been a bustling settlement, a kings' burial place, a home of saints and inspiration for Bram Stoker, author of Dracula. In the interactive visitor centre, visitors can discover how 2,000 years of history make the Abbey one of England's most important archaeological sites.
