Whitby - the seaside resort Goths flock to


Twice a year, Goths from around the world gather in the picture postcard seaport of Whitby, in Yorkshire, for a weekend of dressing up, music and mock-horror.

Whitby was chosen by fans of the goth music scene for its connections to Bram Stoker's Dracula as the resort's ruined abbey plays a central role in the novel - which also incorporates various pieces of Whitby folklore, including the beaching of the Russian ship Dmitri.

Joe Inwood went to have a look.
