This is a group of buildings right on the edge of the water in Whitby, North Yorkshire. We have never stayed in Whitby but tend to visit every time we are in Helmsley. There is always a hustle and bustle to the place as tourists, and school groups visit the Whitby Abbey and the surrounding town. This, of course, was the location for parts of Bram Stoker’s "Dracula". The weather certainly lends itself to the mood of such a novel.
