Whitby Abbey - Whitby Online

Whitby Abbey

Dominating Whitby harbour is the very famous ruin of Whitby Abbey

Whitby Abbey was founded by St Hilda in the year 657. The ruins, which overlook the fantastically picturesque Whitby harbour, should be high on any visitor's list of things to see when they come to Whitby for the first time.

Pay & Display parking is available very close to the abbey itself, accessed via Green Lane, leading up the hill from Church Street, close to the new (not old) bridge. But if you're able, the very best way to access the abbey is by climbing (and counting!) Whitby's famous 199 steps.

Entrance fees for Whitby Abbey are charged, though access is free for members of English Heritage.

A good source of additional information is on the Wikipedia entry for Whitby Abbey here...
