Illuminated Whitby Abbey

Each year, for just one week, Whitby Abbey is illuminated with a breath-taking display of light and colour, highlighting the magnificent ruin that inspired Bram Stoker. The lighting also shows up a great many features that you otherwise would not be able to see.

As you explore its Gothic splendour you can enjoy an evening of Victorian Gothic entertainment.  Don’t forget your camera! The changing colours and the dark sky make for some very atmospheric shots.

Even if you decide that the ‘entertainment’ is not for you then you can simply enjoy the view of the Abbey from down in the town.  Illuminated, it is simply a spectacular sight.

The Abbey will be illuminated 23 – 31 October 2021, come and enjoy a spooky Halloween in Whitby!
