“Harry Collet knows Dracula”
Review of Whitby Walks

Whitby Walks
Ranked #5 of 17 Tours in Whitby
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 7 April 2011

Regardless if you have read the novel or if you know Dracula from the countless movies: do that tour! It is highly entertaining. Harry Collet knows what he is talking about! It doesn't hurt that he is an actor either. Spooky but not frightning Collet creates an uncomparable atmosphere and you leave with a profund knowledge of both Whitby and Stoker's Dracula. Tours start at 8 pm at the Wale Bones. But check the dates on his website: whitbywalks.co.uk

We did this tour on a wet and windy Saturday night in June. It was fantastic, an hour or so of fun, ghost stories, interesting bits about Bram Stoker and his famous book but most of all a really good laugh !

You are taken through the streets of Whitby and thoroughly entertained. Some people might think the whole Dracula thing is a bit cheesy and we had lots of skeptics on our walk, something the tour guide was sure to pick on much to the amusement of everyone else.

Take the time to do this as it's probably just as important to Whitby's tourist industry as the Abbey and a whole lot more fun !

We have just returned from a long weekend in Whitby and went on the In Search of Dracula walk and would recommend it. My husband and I do not normally do "organised" anything preferring to do things our own way but as I am a Dracula fan we decided to go on it for the experience if nothing else. You meet up at 8pm at the Whale Bone Arch and are met by Harry who narrates the story and who is authentically dressed in long black coat and top hat. The cost is £4 for adults (am not sure what the price for the children was but all children get a Dracula badge). The walk is suitable for all types as it is an hour long leisurely sroll through Whitby town centre while stopping a various points along the way for more of Bram Stoker's Dracula story to be told. We even took along our Yorkshire Terrier with us.

The only disappointment was I was expecting the tour to end at Whitby Abbey but as we find out later when we walked there ourselves, the Abbey is not open in the evening which is a shame as it is all lit up and would be great as a finale to the Dracula walk.
