Wedding Venues in Whitby (7)

The North Yorkshire coastal town of Whitby stands facing the North Sea at the point where the River Esk has cut a deep valley on its journey to the coast. In this remote area close to the North York Moors, Whitby has been a natural bridging point on the river since the Middle Ages. This ancient settlement, first known as 'Hwitebi' - the white settlement in Old Norse, is dominated by the majestic ruins of Whitby Abbey which overlook the town from an adjacent headland, and help to create a certain Gothic atmosphere for which the town has become famous via Bram Stoker's 'Dracula' novel. If we are to believe a certain film feature, wedding venues in Whitby have been kept extra busy accommodating the 'Brides of Dracula'.
Besides its dark associations - which in the Victorian era even extended to a fashion for the local, black Whitby, jet-stone fashioned as mourning jewellery - Whitby is also a traditional maritime town. Its steep cobbled streets, scenic harbour, picturesque cottages and pristine sandy beaches make the town a fine centre for exploring the beautiful countryside and spectacular 'dinosaur' Heritage Coast. Couples seeking a location which combines tradition with stunning scenery for the wedding photos, will struggle to find a better location for a traditional wedding in a romantic setting.
Whitby has strong literary connections, exquisite local food, hosts international festivals, and is surrounded by inspiring countryside and impossibly quaint villages. Any bride and groom looking for something unusual could go for a Gothic wedding or a Victorian-themed one.
The varied selection of wedding venues in Whitby includes a castle and country house at the exclusive end of the market, or select hotels and a town hall as mid-range options. Those considering something different may consider a seaside pavilion whilst budget function rooms can be found at local inns and pubs charging affordable prices.
