Whitby Literary Tour

29th March 2020

When Bram Stoker visited Whitby in 1890, little did he know that inspiration would strike, and that he would be inspired to write one of the most famous books ever written. However, Stoker wasn’t the only write to be inspired by our beautiful town…

A young mathematician named Charles Lutwidge Dodgson visited in 1854. His name may not be familiar to you, but perhaps his pen name is; he wrote under the name Lewis Carroll. Yes, the famous story of Alice, the White Rabbit and the Queen of Hearts was part written here in Whitby during his many visits. 

There are many more links to Whitby in literature all the way through to the modern day. To find out more about Whitby’s literary links and history, why not join us on our Whitby Literary Walk. Price includes a Fish & Chips Lunch (does not include sides or drinks).

£18 Adults, £12 Children
