... br> From the Angel of the North sculpture we drove to The region of Yorkshire, specifically the seaside town of Whitby. Temporarily breaking away from the Harry Potter theme Whitby is connected with The story of Dracula through the Whitby Abbey and the famous 199 stairs you have to climb to reach it.... Which we did! The town is also renowned for having the best fish and chips in England so of course we had to try them ...

... br> The nearby town of Helmsley had a great castle and a museum; this could be followed up by a coffee and a slice of cake. There is the Galtries centre for those who enjoy a sense of community, or walks round the well-kept town and fields
