Dracula Experience

9 Marine Parade Whitby YO21 3PR 01947 601 923

We say

Goths and fang fans descend upon Whitby for its well-known Dracula connections – Bram Stoker wrote and set the original novel here, and there are plenty of places of pilgrimage on the Dracula Trail through town. For a kitsch thrill that will give nervous kids the willies, the harbourside Dracula Experience serves up voluptuous vamps and buckets of blood. Or at least it does when the "live actor" (surely he shouldn't be, well, live...) is in residence, which is basically in school holidays. At other times, the entry fee is reduced – but so are the scares.

You say Average Rating ★☆☆☆☆

Time traveling... ★☆☆☆☆

Honestly, this would have been amazing even 15 years ago. Now, it's small, it's poorly kept, and it's not at all scary - even for the little ones. Only go here if it's a rainy day and you've exhausted every other activity in Whitby! Trust me, fishing for crabs from the dock with the kiddies is more entertaining.
