Things to do in Whitby - The Whitby Treasure Trail

Please Note: As much as we love people exploring on our Trails, now is not the right time. We want to help the NHS and protect all of you, so have decided to remove the facility for any Trail sales to be made on our website. As soon as social restrictions are relaxed, we'll make the Trails available again. If you would like to be informed as soon as this is, please drop us a note on the contact page.

The Whitby - Curse of the Vampire Treasure Trail starts at:

Windsor Terrace
Whitby
North Yorkshire
YO21 1ET
England

Please Note:

For all those Vampire lovers out there, this is the perfect Trail for you! Showing you the sites of Whitby that featured in the novel Dracula, this is one Trail shouldn’t be tackled alone or after dark….

This Trail is not marked as wheelchair or pushchair friendly as the route follows pavements and footpaths throughout, with cobbles, some steep inclines and a lot of steps (199 of them!).

Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that there are very few green spaces and you may need to keep your pup on a lead throughout.

The closest long stay pay and display car park to the Trail start point is at Marina Back on Langbourne Road, just a five minute walk away.

There are some fantastic events in Whitby’s calendar, including the Regatta and Winterfest. You may find that during these events, some of the Clues may become obstructed or difficult to access. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Whitby Visitor Information.

There are public toilets available towards the beginning and end of the Trail and the route passes several pubs, restaurants and a few cafes along the way.

Why not make a day of it and visit the famous Whitby Abbey or continue the fright-fest with a trip to The Dracula Experience! You could even try one of our other Whitby Trails to learn more of this town’s interesting history.
