Whitby Abbey

Whitby

One of the most outstanding examples of an Abbey is Whitby Abbey. When you visit, it is not difficult to see why! It’s a historical landmark admired by writers, artists, and photographers for years.

Whitby Abbey underwent a significant renovation project in 2019 to enhance the visitor centre, museum, and interpretation across the site. The transformation cost almost £1.6 million and aimed to allow visitors to enjoy its rich history for many years.

Outdoors, the courtyard area has been transformed into a place of total peace and calm, with a tree-lined avenue, seating, and green spaces planted with herbs, perfect for a relaxed coffee or a picnic. There is also a cosy coffee shop near the entrance to the abbey.
