Visitors to Whitby Abbey in Yorkshire will have the chance to see the ruins aglow thanks to a series of late night events this autumn.
The spooky building was home to monks until it was destroyed by Henry VIII in 1540. Situated on a cliff top, it inspired Bram Stoker when he was writing Dracula.
The ruins will be open from 6pm-8.30pm between 30 October and 2 November.
Highlighting its gothic architecture and the eerie atmosphere, it will be lit with dramatic coloured floodlights for its after-dark guests.
Callers will also be able to discover more about the darker side of the abbey’s past with family-friendly presentations on grave robbing, Victorian undertakers, Jack the Ripper and witch trials.
Tickets cost £5.50 for adults and £3.50 for children, with discounts for English Heritage members.
