We went hoping it would be scary and informative but it failed on both counts! We went in expecting actors but was told there was none that day. We decided to try it anyway which we regretted. we walked through this poorly designed tour and all we could see was what looked like left over scarecrows and not good ones at that. The tour lasted no more than 5 minutes before we were back out on the street wondering WAS THAT IT?? All I can say is save your money this is a rip off.

Well the website looks hot, the outside of the building looks really good but that is..

What a disappointment..

Lets just say it's cheap, unsafe, old and with today's technology it looks like it was created out of 80s mannequins with bad wigs and poor lighting to hide how bad this place is.

It was cheap in but still not worth it.

It could be amazing, the use is there and rue footfall but it does not look like anything has been spent on the location for around 10 years

Its not scary at all, kids may like it hut not much for adults..

Me and my friend decided to give this a try as it didn't seem too bad at £3. From what i'd heard there were real life people to scare you. Well walking through we kept expecting something to jump out at us and all we got was very poor music and sound effects. The only good thing about it was that it got us out of the rain for 5 minutes. I certainly wouldn't bother wasting your money.

Tried this 30th October 2013. It was £3 (not sure if its more expensive in mid summer). The scareyness is the darkness - if you find that scarey (some people do, some don't). There are nice images throughout the tour. The organisers have made a great effort. Young children would find this horrifying. There is audio throughout the tour about Dracula but its unlikely many people bother to listen to it. Expect a young kid wearing a scarey mask to jump out on you when you least expect it. If your in Whitby, its worth a try. Its not an expensive visit and it will add to your days enjoyment.

Do not waste your money on this. More scared of falling in the pitch black corridor than any of the exhibits. Couldn't see anything, couldn't hear anything. Do yourself a favour & give it a miss!!
