GETTING THERE

It takes around 2hr 50min to reach Whitby from York by train, with a change at Thornaby, or there’s a direct bus, no. 840, from York to Whitby (2hr 20min). www.thetrainli­ne.com; www.transdevbu­s.co.uk

EAT, DRINK, SLEEP

The Bagdale Hall Hotel is a Tudor manor near the Thomas Cook Memorial, on the West Cliff where Stoker stayed. It has traditiona­l, beamed rooms, four-posters and plenty of charm. Don’t leave Whitby without trying fish and chips; best in town are to be found at Trenchers, right on the harbour. For an atmospheri­c pub, try the Duke of York, at the bottom of the 199 steps to the abbey, a favourite haunt of Bram Stoker. www.bagdale.co.uk; www.trenchersr­estaurant.co.uk; www.dukeofyork.co.uk
