Whitby Abbey, inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula, is being illuminated at night from the 25th October to the 31st October.

Perched on a high cliff, it’s gothic splendour is a fantastic place to photograph at any time but bathed in colour it should be absolutely spectacular.

Free for members of English Heritage otherwise it’s £3.50. Also doing the same is Rivealaux Abbey nearby. Again, English Heritage owned it’s also a dramatic backdrop as well as exploring its 1,000 year history. It’s actually having pumpkin related activities and I would love to take a carved pumpkin and take some great photos but there’s no way I’ll be able to get time off from work.

Carved pumpkins in the foreground would look absolutely splendid
Beautiful! Love the architecture. It must look amazing bathed in colored light too. I had the same thought... photographing carving pumpkins in the foreground with Whitby Abbey in the background. If only I lived closer.
