Whitby Goth Weekend
There’s nothing quite like Whitby Goth Weekend... twice each year this quaint seaside town transforms into a haven for steampunks, vampires, metalheads and everything in between!
This popular event has now been running for over two decades, with as many as 1,500 goths in attendance, making it one of the largest features on Whitby’s calendar of events.
As well as live performances, the bi-annual goth week also runs many popular stalls and the popular ‘Bizarre Bazaar’, selling everything from jewellery to gothic baby clothes! Throughout the town you’ll also find a mix of Goth shops, so even if you’re not a Goth Weekend regular you won’t miss out on the fun!
Climb the 199 steps to Whitby Abbey for the finest views of the town and explore the ancient ruins and graveyard which inspired Bram Stoker’s masterpiece Dracula. The famous Whitby Whalebones on the West Cliff give a glimpse into the town’s maritime history, and each year hundreds of ornately dressed goths visit here to take their picture beneath the striking arch.
Whitby Goth Weekend will be taking place from 26th October - 28th October 2018, but why not extend your stay to celebrate this popular event? All our Whitby Cottages below are available from Wednesday 24th October 2018.
