Fodor's England 2014
St. Mary Review
On top of the East Cliff—reached by climbing 199 stone steps—this Norman church overlooks the town, while it in turn is watched over by the striking ruins of Whitby Abbey. Bram Stoker lived in Whitby briefly and later said the image of pallbearers carrying coffins up the church's long stone staircase inspired him to write Dracula. The unusual-looking church with its ship's-deck roof, triple-decker pulpit, and enclosed box pews dates from the 12th century, although almost everything else you see today is the result of 19th- and 20th-century renovations. The churchyard is filled with the weather-beaten gravestones of former mariners and fishermen. Rather than walking, you can drive to the hilltop and park in the abbey's lot for a small fee. Or take the hourly Esk Valley Bus 97.
