Its a stunning place, set high up above Whitby with wonderful views out to sea. We drove up to it, rather than climb the 199 steps, and 2 hours in the carpark was just about right. There is a lot of the structure still in place and the audio guide sets the scene well and goes through the history of the site and some of the key characters. It also gives a good feeling for the lives of monks and nuns at the time. There is also a visitors centre displaying artefacts found on site and giving more information about the monks and nuns. Well worth a visit.
