Whitby Abbey posted on its Facebook page yesterday: "The moment you’ve all been waiting for… After two years Illuminated Abbey is back!

"Enjoy the Gothic ruins lit up with spectacular illuminations and see live performances as you wander round the abbey this Halloween."

You can see Bram Stoker's inspiration in a new light as Whitby Abbey is bathed in all the colours of the rainbow.
